Lemon and Herbs Roasted Chicken Drumsticks

September 28, 2010

We had our long weekend ... as yesterday was a Public Holiday ~ Queen's Birthday.. I always wonder why WA celebrated Queen's Birthday in the last week of September...  Eastern States celebrated Queen's Birthday on different dates and in the UK, it was celebrated the first Saturday of June.... anyone care to highlight??? Miss E was saying... that WA has different 'Queen'... hahaha, she can be funny sometimes..

We planned to do some 'Spring' cleaning especially the patio... we did nothing instead... just laze around, had BBQ... enjoy the good weather and cooked simple meal... :)
  • 8 pieces chicken drumsticks
  • 1/2 cup green olives
  • potatoes - quartered
  • 2 lemons - 1 quartered and the other for juice
  • 2 cloves garlic - crushed
  • sprigs of lemon thyme
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 200C.

Washed and pat dry chicken drumsticks. Arrange in a baking dish.  Mix olive oil, crushed garlic and lemon juice with salt and pepper. Add the quartered potatoes, green olives and lemon. Drizzle with the olive lemon mixture...and lemon thyme...

Bake for 30 minutes and turn the drumsticks over and carry on baking for another 15-20 minutes or until the chicken drumsticks cooked through. Keep basting the drumsticks with the pan juice as to keep it moist.


  1. The herbal chicken looks mouthwatering! MissE has a sense of humour. :-))

  2. I love this type of one dish meal. Just put everything in the baking dish and stick it in the oven :)

  3. Angie,

    yeah... good for lazy days ;)

  4. In the UK, it doesn't seem that Queen's Bday is not a big deal... it's not a public holiday!

  5. Leemei,
    I remember that too... tak pa depa nak bagi kita orang cuti :)
