Step 1

With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 450 °F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the chili sauce, 2 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, and the next 3 spices. Add the chicken drumsticks and toss to coat.

Step 3

Spread the chicken into a shallow roasting pan. In the same bowl, toss the potatoes with 4 tablespoons olive oil, taking care to coat them with the remaining marinade. Spread around the chicken. Season everything with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Bake for about 45 minutes or until the chicken falls off the bone and the potatoes are tender. Toss in the peas the last 20 minutes of cooking time.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I used what we call a Maryland cut of chicken (thigh and drumsticks left intact) and carisma potatoes (low gi white potatoes) and as they were small I used two of them and put the peas (I actually used peas and corn) and put those in at the last 2 minutes as I though 20 was way too much and maybe that was a typo. The end result was crispy juicy chicken and crispy potatoes and succulent peas and corn. Thank you RicepeFairy for a lovely dinner, made for Alphabet Tag Game at FF&F.
