This is very easy to make, has a little spice, which you can control, by adjusting the cayenne pepper, but as my kids are used to spice, I put the amount listed in the ingredients.
The original recipe baked it at 250C for 15-18 minutes. Now I have never been able to bake any chicken pieces in 15 minutes, so I ignored that and baked it how I know it will work and I know the chicken will be cooked. So use my method as a guide or try Donna Hay's, do what works for you.
I have since changed this recipe and now cook it using chicken marylands, as some us prefer thighs to legs.
Super easy, great flavours, a nice dinner for the whole family.
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves
1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Sea salt and ground white pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
12 chicken drumsticks or 6 chicken legs and 6 chicken thighs
Lemon wedges, to serve
In a large snap lock bag, add the smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin and oregano. Give it a quick shake to combine.
Add the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Shake the bag to combine.
Add the garlic and the chicken, seal the bag, and move the chicken about to ensure each piece gets a nice coating of the marinade. Refrigerate for an hour.
Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced.
Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Place the chicken on your prepared baking tray, skin side up, roast for 40-50 minutes or until golden and cooked through, (it can take up to 60 minutes, depends on your oven, and the size of your chicken pieces, I just like to start checking at 40 minutes).
Serve with lemon wedges and a green salad.
