Grilled Lemon Oregano Chicken Drumsticks

This recipe is all about letting simple, fresh flavors shine through and we were huge fans; it’s definitely going into the dinner rotation and I’m looking forward to trying the lemon-oregano combination with chicken thighs, breasts and maybe even pork or shrimp!

Grilled Lemon-Oregano Chicken Drumsticks

adapted from Bon Appetit


  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 chicken drumsticks


Whisk lemon juice, oregano, garlic, olive oil, salt and lemon zest in a small bowl. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Pour marinade into 1-gallon resealable plastic bag; add chicken and seal. Turn bag to coat chicken. Marinate at room temperature 30 minutes or in refrigerator up to 2 days, turning occasionally (I marinated for about 2 hours).

Prepare grill by heading to medium-high heat. Place chicken, with some marinade still clinging, on the grill rack. Grill chicken until cooked through and golden brown on all sides, turning frequently, about 30 minutes.
