Directions

  1. Wash chicken and remove skin from drummies (pulling it off with a paper towel makes it easier, also if you do this when they are slightly frozen it helps).
  2. Whisk together yogurt, ginger, chili powder, ground coriander, salt, pepper, lemon juice, food coloring (optional), tomato paste, and oil.
  3. Add chicken to marinade and chill overnight.
  4. The next day, preheat oven to 375°F.
  5. Place chicken legs on a foil lined baking sheet (do not add any extra marinade that falls away) and bake at 375°F for 40-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
  6. Finish cooking chicken on a grill or under the broiler for 5-8 minutes (gives a light char).
