|Chili Lime Drumsticks|
This is a wonderfully flavorful chicken marinade that could be used for wings, thighs, drumsticks, a spatchcocked or a whole cut up chicken and will work either for the grill or the oven. I have to say that I was highly impressed with my new grill for my first skin-on chicken - no major flare ups! Gotta work a bit on temperature regulation, but that'll come in time and learning the exact hot spots on the grill. This is a way bigger grill than my previous ones so I'm like a kid in a candy store, though I am no grill aficionado y'all. Rather I look at a grill as an extension of my oven and stovetop, that just happens to live outside! I'll leave the real grillin' to the experts.
The flavor combination of lime, with fresh garlic, ginger, chili powder and just a touch of McCormick's red curry powder was amazing. The red curry is a blend of coriander, cumin, chili pepper, red pepper, and cardamom, that I absolutely adore. It is superb in a stir fry and worked extremely well here in this dish. Enjoy.
