Colombian Style Roasted Chicken Legs
PUBLISHED ON: 12.01.2009
I love the flavor of these chicken drumsticks. This dish packs a lot of flavor with minimum preparation. The meat is moist and the skin is flavorful. A perfect dish to marinate the night before and cook the next day. Served with rice and a simple salad, you have a delicious meal, that is kid-friendly too.
This recipe is from Erica’s blog www.mycolombianrecipes.com where she shares her traditional Colombian food recipes that she grew up eating and enjoying with her family.
Colombian Style Roasted Chicken Legs
(Pierna de pollo Asadas a mi Estilo Colombiano)
12 chicken drumsticks with skin
1 bunch scallions
3 garlic cloves
1 medium white onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon dried ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons white vinegar
Salt and pepper
1. In a food processor, place the scallions, garlic, onion, cilantro, thyme, vinegar, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Process to a paste.
2. Place the chicken in a ziplock bag and add the marinade and cover the chicken evenly with the marinade. Refrigerate the chicken overnight.
3. Cover a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Position oven rack in the center of the oven and turn the oven to broil.
4. Place the chicken legs on the baking sheet. Broil for about 25-30 minutes, turning the legs once during cooking or until the chicken is cooked and the drumsticks are golden brown. Let rest for 5 minutes and transfer to a serving plate.

Wow. I make something similar without the viinegar. I am loving the vinegar. Scrumptious!
I just started following her site, and she does have some great food on her site…the flavors here, and that photo…darn I am hungry!
Velva, these looks so crispy good! Oh my, I would love to have that plate in front of me right now!
A couple of these drumsticks and a few Pomegranate Rosemary Royales and I'd be in heaven! Great recipes.

This dish is for me, right? Oh, thank you thank you so much! 😉 I love how they have to be marinated overnight. That's how you soak in the flavor. Even though I don't cook, I am forever scandalized by marinates that claim \”Ready in 15 minutes\” on their bottles. Yeah, so I buy this bottle AND a time machine will come with it?…

That looks so good, and so easy! It's great when one can assemble a dish ahead of time, and only have to cook it on the day of serving.

Velva, I am sure I can almost smell the delicious aroma! Such a wonderful combination of flavors, we would love this.Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂
lovely recipe and the flavors are just perfect…quite similar to Indian marinade for a tangdi kabab ( kababs made with legs of chicken ) ………
hey how much scallions you say ??a bunch ?? how much exactly ?actually i am thinking by Indian standards of a bunch n how much we use in such recipes…
Woweee, love this Caj-Mex combo of flavors! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!
How delicious, i am drooling over these flavours!
Just reading your blog makes me gain weight! And in real life I can see these TEMPTATIONS are going to result in OVERINDULGENCE! DELICIOUS!
thanks Velva , yes ..if it's 5-6 scallions , it is more like an indian recipe , we'd probably add mint instead of thyme…looking at the pic i want to cook t now !!!
