Tequila-Lime DrumsticksBy · May 02 2011 · Comments
I made this dish sometime ago. I like to reserve the right to take a few nights off from cooking so I hoard a few recipes for later use. Despite when it was cooked, these drumsticks are a welcome mat for warm weather and fresh summer ingredients.
- 12 chicken drumsticks
- ½ cup tequila
- Juice from one lime
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 clove minced garlic
Place the chicken in a large shallow bowl. Whisk together the tequila, lime juice, salt, sugar, olive oil and garlic in a medium sized bowl and then pour over the chicken. Cover with cellophane and refrigerate for one hour.
Pre-heat the oven to 425°. Transfer the chicken to a large baking dish and reserve the remaining marinade for basting. Bake the chicken uncovered for 50 minutes, basting with a few spoonfuls of the marinade every 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
