The key with this recipe is the spiced rub we marinate the chicken with for maximum Caribbean appeal. It's a quick and simple chicken dish great oven roasted or on the grill.

Author's Notes

If you don’t have a wire rack, use a tinfoil-lined baking tray brushed with some vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

Step 1
Grate the Orange (1) into a small bowl.
Step 2
Mix in the Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) , Salt (1 tsp) , Onion Powder (1 tsp) , Dried Chives (1 tsp) , Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 tsp) , Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Dried Thyme (1 tsp) , Hot Smoked Paprika (1 tsp) , Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) , Ground Ginger (1/2 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp) , Ground Allspice (1/2 tsp) , and Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) to form a moist rub.
Step 3
Now go ahead and rub the Chicken Drumsticks (4 lb) with the rub, cover and place in the fridge to marinate for about 4 hours.
Step 4
Once the chicken has marinated, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Step 5
Remove the seasoned chicken from the fridge and allow it to come back to room temperature. Use a wire rack on a baking sheet to roast- this will allow for the hot air to circulate around the chicken pieces and cook evenly. Try to place them in a single layer and with a bit of space between each.
Step 6
Place the drumsticks in the preheated oven and on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 1 hour. This time may vary depending on the size of your drumsticks.
Step 7
Once you remove from the oven they are ready to serve and enjoy!
