Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks


I wanted to try this Aristocrat Style Chicken Barbecue Recipe but because I didn’t have one of the ingredients needed, I had to tweak the recipe a bit and came up with a slightly different version.  The drumsticks tasted great and we had them without anything else on the side while watching TV. 🙂  Finger licking goodness.

What you need:

6 – 10 pieces large chicken drumsticks

2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water

Marinade (and sauce for later):

  • 1 cup kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup 7-up
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper

What you need to do:

  1.  In a bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Prick each chicken drumsticks with a fork or the tip of a knife.  Place all the drumsticks into the marinade and set aside for at least an hour.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180 deg C.
  4. Place the drumsticks on a rack placed on a tray and bake for 20 minutes (set aside the marinade).  Turn each drumstick over and continue baking for 15 minutes.
  5. While they are in the oven, pour the cornstarch mixture and the marinade onto a saucepan and boil.  This will thicken.
  6. Brush the sauce on top of each drumstick, loosely cover with foil and continue baking for 5 minutes.  After the 5th minute, turn over each drumstick and baste the other side, cover again with the foil and bake again for 5 minutes.  Do this one more time.
  7. Serve the chicken by itself or with rice or salad, with some of the sauce drizzled on top and the remainder served in a small jug or bowl to dip in if desired.
