Chicken Drumsticks Recipe made with my Masala Blend

by Samantha Bacchus McLeod

This Baked Chicken Drumsticks is made with my Kitsilano Masala, Guyanese Green Seasoning, Olive oil, and Greek tomato paste. 5 ingredients and 35 minutes.

It is my easy-peasy go-to sheet pan Chicken Drumsticks recipe. Prepped in 10 minutes, placed on a parchment paper lined pan and into the oven it goes. A preheated oven (380 degrees) that is, for 35 minutes. Boom, done!

I love to have ready-made proteins waiting for me when I get back from an Orangetheory Fitness class. After an intense workout that includes cardio and lots of strength training, protein is a must have for getting those muscles healing up nice and strong. I do find it is very easy to whip up some veggies and carbs in minutes, but it is the protein choices and flavours that takes time to think on and prepare.

This baked chicken recipe is so easy – that I need to keep writing more words so to get some SEO on this post, like really. But listen up, this is why I love it, not only for my easy prep creations but mainly for the easy no clean up bit.

This is Baked Chicken Drumsticks recipe is made with my Kitsilano Masala, Guyanese Green Seasoning, Olive oil, and Greek tomato paste. I swear that is it, no more, no less!

The other reason I created this recipe is because I crave a good curry without all the hard work that entails, you know the mixing and roasting and grinding, the cleaning and prepping and chopping, the long saute and the longer simmer.

So, I usually buy a ton of chicken drumsticks from my butcher (Pete’s meat on Arbutus and 12th)…or from Urban Fare in a pinch, although last time I bought from UF it was quite tough, not tender meat like from the butcher’s. Once home, I like to clean it well with vinegar and salt, washed in cold water, pat it dry, and parcel those off into 8 pieces per Ziplock bag.

The day before I want to make this recipe, I will defrost a bag in the fridge overnight, and the next morning toss the chicken with the masala, seasoning, tomato paste and olive oil together, set it in the fridge to marinate for the day. While off to work I go, in my case the next room.

After income-work and a good workout at the studio, it is time to fix dinner.

Start the oven, prep some veg, start a carb. While the chicken is baking, whip up the sides, or reheat leftovers if you have it. Have a shower, get into pjs, and dinner is ready. Boom. Time for Miss Marple.

8 Chicken Drumsticks, cleaned and prepped 1 tablespoon Kitsilano Masala 1 tablespoon Guyanese Green Seasoning ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 small tin Tomato Paste (equivalent to 1 level tablespoon)


In a large bowl, combine the chicken drumsticks with Kitsilano Masala, Guyanese Green Seasoning, olive oil, and tomato paste. Wearing a pair of gloves, mix the ingredients thoroughly with your hands. Ensure the marinade is spread evenly on the chicken, even under the skin. Arrange the chicken drumsticks on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, spacing them evenly. Pour any excess marinade over the chicken. Every drop adds flavour! Bake in a preheated oven at 380 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove from the overn and let cool. Enjoy your chicken!


Serving Suggestion: While the chicken is baking, you can prepare or reheat side dishes. After dinner, it's the perfect time to relax with an episode of Miss Marple.
