  • 2 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 1 oz taco seasoning
  • 2 fresh limes
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (diced)


  1. Place chicken drumsticks in a large freezer bag. Add the juice from both limes along with the taco seasoning. Seal the bag and then massage the chicken. Marinate overnight for best results or cook immediately.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a dish with aluminum foil. Pour chicken into the dish and bake for 30-40 minutes or until fully cooked. Time will vary deepening on the size of your chicken. Check on smaller chicken drumsticks around 20 minutes. 
  3. Add cilantro to your chicken and serve.
