Spicy Lemon Chicken

Maybe it's because I'm from the Caribbean, but I really love spicy foods. This chicken recipe is spicy, but with a cool refreshing citrus flavor of lemons and herbs. There's a beautiful balance that is flavorful and unique. Here's my recipe, do enjoy.


5-6 medium Drumsticks

2 tbsp Smoked Paprika

1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1/4 tsp Chili Flakes

Minced Chili Pepper (according to the level of heat you desire)

1/4 tsp Black pepper

1 tbsp Thyme

1 tbsp grated Ginger

3 cloves crushed then minced Garlic

2 tbsp Olive oil

3 tbsp Lemon Juice


●Wash and clean drums thoroughly with vinegar and water or lemon and water. Drain and place in mixing bowl.

●Add all ingredients to drums except the oil and massage well into drums, set aside to marinate for 20 plus minutes.

●Heat a wide skillet on med-high heat, add oil and add drums once oil has heated up.

●Cook drums for 2-3 mins on each side until it has golden color on each side.

●Add 1/2 cup of liquid to bowl where chicken was previously marinated and then add liquid to skillet with drums.

●Place lid on skillet and allow to cook for 15 mins or until almost all of the liquid has been reduced.

●Turn of heat and serve with wedges of lemon and desired sides.
