  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken drumsticks about 10
  • 3 tablespoons chimichurri seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar


  • Rinse drumsticks and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, stir chimichurri seasoning with oil, lemon juice and vinegar together. Add in chicken and stir to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate 3-6 hours.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and place a rack over top. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and place chicken on top of rack.
  • Brush with any remaining marinade left in the bottom of the bowl.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, 10-15 minutes more. Remove from oven and serve with lemon wedges.
