Devilled Chicken Drumsticks

These are much tastier than the ordinary roasted drumsticks. Have plenty of paper napkins around when serving as they are sticky to handle.

45 minutes


  • 10 Chicken Drumsticks
  • ┬╝pint good Cooking Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcester Sauce
  • 2 rounded tablespoons Tomato Sauce
  • 1 level tablespoon ready-made Mustard
  • 1 level teaspoon Caster Sugar
  • 1 level tablespoon Mild Curry Powder
  • Salt, pepper and Paprika, a dash of each


  1. Make sure chicken is well defrosted if using frozen poultry. With a sharp knife, make 3 slashes on each drumstick until you feel the bone.
  2. Lay drumsticks in a single layer in ovenproof dish or dishes.
  3. Mix all other ingredients together and whisk until well blended. Pour the mixture over the drumsticks and leave overnight to marinade. Turn them occasionally to let marinade get through.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes at gas5, 375E, 190C, turning once. Remove to a wire tray covered in greaseproof paper and leave to go cold.

May be frozen if you wish, but I prefer to cook them the day before needed.
