Baked Curry Chicken Drumsticks are an easy to prepare dinner. The chicken legs are tender, delicious, and packed with a lot of flavor.
The legs are first marinaded in a mixture of yellow curry powder, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and smoked paprika.
Mix the marinade in advance, such as the night before or in the morning to make the dinner even faster on a busy weeknight.
When you get home, just heat the oven and place the legs on a baking sheet and slide them in the oven to bake for 40-45 minutes.
Plus, the longer you marinate the chicken legs, the more flavorful they will be.
Balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce are a plus to the marinade, not only for flavor, but also to help break down the proteins and fats, which means more tender meat. Plus, they add a dash of sweetness without adding any sugar.
