Cumin and Paprika Rubbed Chicken Drumsticks

Ingredients

1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon paprika powder
2 garlic cloves, minced (preferably with a microplane)
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

1
Marinate the chicken with the spice powders, garlic, lemon juice and a tsp of olive oil. Add some salt and pepper to taste and leave at room temperature for at least half an hour.
2
Heat the oven to 400F. Grease an oven proof pan. Lay the drumsticks in a single layer. Bake on high for the first fifteen minutes, then reduce to 300F and continue to cook for another fifteen, or until almost done.
3
Then turn on the broiler and place the pan under it. Continue to cook the chicken until it gets a nice colour on both sides (turn them after about five minutes on each side).
4
Serve with corn sautéed with garlic, chilli and green onions and garnished with fresh cilantro and spring onion greens

About

This chicken goes well with caramelized corn (http://www.foodista.com/recipe/NWLNFNG8/julia-moskins-caramelized-corn-with-fresh-mint). Just replace the mint with cilantro and add some spring onions as well. Remember to baste the chicken with the leftover juices before serving.
