I love fresh dill. Just the smell makes my mouth water and I begin to think of all of the wonderful things I can do with it. I can use it to make homemade ranch dip, and of course pickles, and as I found out from this recipe, it also pairs nicely with chicken. To start, I marinated the chicken drumsticks in a quick marinade of olive oil, fresh dill, red wine vinegar, salt and fresh cracked pepper. I then roasted the drumsticks in the oven until the skin was golden brown and crispy. The smell coming from the kitchen was almost as good as the first juicy bite.
I used chicken drumsticks in this recipe because they were on sale at my local grocery store. You could also substitute chicken thighs or even a whole fryer chicken cut into 8 pieces so you can get a little bit of dark and white meat.
Note: You need to marinate this chicken for at least 2 hours, be sure to plan accordingly.
