1½ tsp smoked paprika


To serve:

  1. In a bowl, combine the drumsticks with the dried oregano, dried thyme, smoked paprika, garlic and some salt and pepper. Drizzle over the olive oil and lemon juice and toss to coat well. Cover and leave to marinate for at least two hours or overnight if possible.
