Mediterranean Chicken Drumsticks

The weather here has been icky to say the least. My daughter is enjoying a snow day today and there is a group of neighborhood boys who have figured out I hate to shovel and have been getting rich off me this week. I have been pretending it's summer by eating strawberry shortcake and making Mediterranean chicken drumsticks. One can imagine right?

Ready for the oven

Mediterranean Chicken Drumsticks
You will need:
6-8 chicken drumsticks
4 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tsp garlic powder
2 Tsp Oregano
paprika, salt and pepper to taste

In a gallon size zip lock bag mix the red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder and oregano. Add the chicken and marinade turning the bag occasionally for 8-12 hours. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Place the chicken on the baking sheet skin side up and sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper. These are optional but the paprika really adds a nice color to the chicken. Bake for 45 minutes until the skin is crispy and the juices run clear. Enjoy!

Serves 6, assuming one drumstick per serving: 256 calories and only a trace of carbohydrates
