Caribbean Grilled Drumsticks
- Total Time
We slather chicken drumsticks with lemon juice, brown sugar, and a good dose of Jamaican jerk seasoning.
fresh lemon juice¼ cup(s)
packed brown sugar3 Tbsp
garlic clove(s)2 clove(s), medium, crushed through a press
jerk seasoning1 Tbsp
table salt½ tsp
uncooked skinless boneless chicken drumstick(s)2 pound(s), 8 (1/4 pound)
- Combine the lemon juice, sugar, garlic, jerk seasoning, and salt in a zip-close plastic bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
- Spray the grill or broiler rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill or preheat the broiler.
- Transfer the chicken from the bag to the grill rack; discard the marinade. Grill or broil the chicken 5 inches from the heat, 10 minutes. Turn the chicken and grill or broil until an instant-read thermometer inserted in a drumstick registers 180°F, about 8 minutes longer. Yields 2 drumsticks per serving.
