Chicken recipes are always a crowd-pleaser. This easy chicken marinade comes together in minutes for juicy, tender chicken every time. For the beer, use whatever beer you like. Corona is a good choice but if you can’t use beer or prefer not to you can use Ginger Ale, Apple Cider or Apple Juice.
1.Pour olive oil into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup.
2.Mix together salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper and add to olive oil. Add garlic, onions, and parsley. Mix together well with a fork. Slowly add beer as it will cause the mixture to foam and bubble slightly.
3.Pour marinade over the chicken in a zip top bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal. Turn the bag from side to side to make sure all chicken has been coated with the marinade.
4.Place the bag flat on a small, rimmed kitchen sheet pan and pop into the refrigerator. Allow to sit up to 1 hour or overnight for best results, turning the bag over every few hours to keep the chicken coated.
5.Put the chicken drumsticks on a roasting tray and roast for 20-30 minutes, or until the skin is golden and the chicken is cooked through. (To check, pierce the drumstick at its thickest part, next to the bone. The juices should run clear.) Tuck in!
