By marinating the chicken beforehand, we ensure deep flavor and added moisture (aka juiciness). This has quickly become one of my secret recipes for family meals. Everyone loves it and it’s easy to prepare. It will take no longer than 5 minutes to prepare the marinade. Leave your chicken drumsticks marinating until the grill is ready to go.

The end result is a flavorful and brown-crusted chicken drumstick that will leave everyone wanting more.
