These spicy chicken drumsticks have a real kick to them! They make a great light lunch with a salad or some veg on the side. They are also a hit at any party, we assure you they will be one of the first things to go!

Drumsticks are great because they are economical, flavourful and stay more succulent than chicken breast.

The key to flavorful and tender chicken is the marinade! The yogurt keeps the chicken moist while the spices add flavour. Simply mix everything together and forget about it for a few hours.

If you’re not so keen on the heat simply reduce the amount of chilli powder, they will still taste great.

Once marinaded just pop them in the oven, sit back and relax while they cook away – this recipe couldn’t be any easier!
