Roasted Chicken Drumsticks

 The secret to these flavorful chicken drumsticks is the homemade Fire-Roasted Red Peppers Seasoning. This is one of my favorite seasoning mixtures which is a combination of fire-roasted red peppers, cilantro, parsley, and some spices. This homemade Fire-Roasted Red Peppers Seasoning is an excellent time-saver. another way I save some time when cooking this chicken drumsticks is by pre-boiling them before they go in the oven. sometimes it seems to me that baking chicken legs can take forever, especially if I’m hungry and tired. I find that by boiling the chicken just a few minutes before baking it cuts time and most importantly it assures that the chicken is completely cooked. This is a process called Parboiling. It is important to know that the meat is only partially cooked so it is necessary to finish off cooking the chicken drumsticks in the oven. 

How to make this flavorful roasted chicken drumsticks 

First season the chicken legs with fresh garlic,  salt, and pepper. Then, on the stove pre-cook, the chicken legs over medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

Once the chicken drumsticks have finished parboiling is time to remove them from the stove. Using tongs proceed to place the chicken drumsticks in an oven-safe pan and add the homemade Fire-Roasted Red Peppers Seasoning. Place them in the oven on a 450-degree temperature for about 15 to 20 minutes. Remembered that by parboiling the chicken drumsticks you are saving time.
