Get an air tight freezer bag, place the drumsticks into the bag and tie at the top, so the bag doesn’t leak. Place in the fridge in a small tub at the bottom of the fridge. This is so its away from other fresh and cooked products.

Leave to marinade for 2 hours.

After 2 hours take the chicken, still in the bag from the fridge. Remove the drumsticks from the bag and place on to a baking tray or oven rack if you have one, into a preheated oven at 190 c for 25 to 30 minutes.

Once the chicken drumsticks has been cooking for 25 to 30 minutes, take out of the oven and place onto a plate.

Checking Temperature.

Now you need to check the temperature of the internal meat. The temperature must be at least 75C.

Inserting the point of a digital thermometer into the deepest part of the drumstick you can check the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
