Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks


I always stock my fridge with plain Siggi’s yogurt because I cook with it so much! It made the perfect marinade for these drumsticks, which are super moist and flavorful.

Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks

Serves 4-5


  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon coriander

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • Juice of one lime

  • 1 lb chicken drumsticks


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice and spices. Add the chicken and toss until fully coated. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with a wire rack. Bake chicken 20 minutes, then flip and bake 20 minutes more. Heat broiler and broil until skin is crispy, about 2 minutes.
