Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients, except the drumsticks, in a shallow sealable container, seasoning well with salt and pepper.
  2. Make several slashes in the flesh on each chicken leg before adding them to the marinade-this lets the flavor in and also helps them to cook more evenly. Turn the drumsticks to coat them thoroughly.
  3. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off the excess.
  5. Cook under a preheated broiler or on the grill for 7-8 minutes on each side or until richly browned and the juices run clear when the skewer is inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
Tips:
  • Check that the mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika are gluten free.
  • These are delicious served with grilled corn on the cob. Roll the cobs in a mixture of salt, pepper, and chilies, with lime squeezed over, and cook under a broiler or on a grill. Note that some people are sensitive to chilies, so omit if in any doubt.
