Roasted chicken drumsticks in herbs

Aromatic chicken fingers baked in herbs is what my children like the most. Slightly spicy but not too much, but with a scent of rosemary and thyme, which is what I like best with chicken. Ideally, if you have a cast iron baking dish, the chicken fingers come out perfect. I used to be sceptical about a pot of cast irons, but since I started using them, I have begun to notice their value. The meat comes out juicier, more aromatic, just perfect. A cast iron vessel may be a cost but worth investing in because a well-stored pot will serve you for years and is unbreakable.

How to choose the best ingredients for roasted chicken drumsticks in herbs

Chicken drumsticks: choose the best chicken fingers you can, quality is always important and the free-range tastes really sticky.

Thyme & Rosemary: for me, thyme and rosemary are the essential herbs for seasoning chicken. You can add after the baking twig to make the chicken even more aromatic when you are fresh. When I have fresh herbs in my garden in the summer season, I always do it.

Granulated garlic: granulated garlic is the most convenient to use, but it can also be fresh, and then you use 1 to 2 of garlic and crush the press or chop it finely.

Tips and tricks

  • You can marinate the chicken drumstick earlier for about 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator if you have time. Then, the chicken drumsticks will be even more aromatic.
  • If you want a crispy crust, remove the lid 10-15 minutes before the end of stewing then it will brown wonderfully. I am a fan of the crispy crust, so I mastered this method to perfection.

A very aromatic version of the chicken. I recommend baking in a cast iron pot because the smell spreads throughout the dish.
