15 drumsticks
15 drumsticks
  • 15 Free range chicken drumsticks
  • 1/2 cup (122g) SCD Yoghurt or natural yoghurt if you are not following SCD
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 1/2 inch Fresh ginger, grated
  • 6 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon Ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon Ground tumeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
  1. Mix all the ingredients (except the drumsticks) together in a bowl and stir well. Pour them into a large sandwich bag. Add the chicken drumsticks to the bag and refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.
  2. When you are ready to cook preheat the oven to 200°C Fan, 220°C electric, gas mark 7 or 420°F. Pour the contents of the bag into a colander in the sink to let the excess yoghurt drain off. Place the drumsticks on baking trays lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the skin nice and crispy. I recommended checking the meat with a meat thermometer to ensure it is cooked fully.
