A picnic in the park is a real pleasure with friends or family. It allows you to enjoy the good weather while sharing a meal with the people you love. But what to bring? Here is a delicious recipe idea for the perfect picnic!

These chicken drumsticks perfect for a picnic, you can serve it with a delicious salad. I choose to cook it in the oven, because you get a quick and uniform cooking. I like to brush it with a marinade, which keeps all the flavors during cooking. At the exit of the oven, you can cut it easily and quickly. You can even keep the extra making sandwiches for lunch.

Ingredients

  • Marinade:
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chicken:
  • 12 skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 4 cups of water

Instructions

Step 1
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, garlic, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, ginger, all spice and salt and pepper. Reserve.

Step 2
In a large airtight bag, mix chicken and marinade. Close the bag. Refrigerate for 2 to 12 hours. Drain the chicken.

Step 3
Preheat the oven to 375 ˚F and place the chicken on a baking sheet.

Step 4
Cook the drumsticks in the oven for 40 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked and to let the marinade caramelize. Once out of the oven, cover the chicken with an aluminum foil and let it rest for 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute in the meat, and this ultimately gives a softer and juicier chicken.

Step 5
Serve hot or cold chicken
