After I came back from my holiday, I ask my youngest son what did he cook when I was away, he told me he cook Cajun chicken. As I don’t really cook a lot of western food, I’m not that familiar with the spices. Since he like Cajun seasoning, I decided to look up recipe on the internet and experiment with it. I came across this recipe online, which is very simple and easy, this is an ideal recipe when you need something quick that requires little to zero preparation, in fact, 5 minutes of preparation time is all that you need to make these crispy Cajun Chicken Drumsticks. This recipe is always popular with my boys.
1.2 kg drumsticks (about 6 to 7 drumsticks)
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Wash and drain dry the chicken drumsticks then rub 1/2 teaspoon salt all over the drumsticks
Stir together all the spices for cajun seasoning in a plate and mix well.
Preheat oven to 190°C Grill setting
Line a baking tray with baking paper
Rub the chicken with the cajun seasoning all over. Leave the meaty side with
skin facing up.
Put about 5g of butter on the top of each drumstick, on the part that is most
meaty. The butter will melt all over the meat and skin, keeping the meat juicy
and and make the skin crispy.
Grill for 15 minutes in the oven, then turn the chicken over and grill for
another 10min or till golden brown and cooked.
