Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Need a caveman, gluten free, dairy free, and primal main course? Cumin and Paprika Rubbed Chicken Drumsticks could be an amazing recipe to try. This recipe makes 2 servings with 346 calories, 15g of protein, and 31g of fat each. For 88 cents per serving, this recipe covers 10% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 45 minutes. Not a lot of people made this recipe, and 2 would say it hit the spot. A mixture of olive oil, paprika powder, juice of lime, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so yummy. To use up the salt and pepper you could follow this main course with the Dr. Pepper Cake with Flour Cooked Frosting as a dessert. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 37%. This score is rather bad. Try Paprika-Herb Rubbed Chicken, One-Pot Cumin & Smoked Paprika Chicken with Potatoes, and Cumin-Rubbed Chicken with Guacamole Sauce for similar recipes.

Instructions

  1. Marinate the chicken with the spice powders, garlic, lemon juice and a tsp of olive oil. Add some salt and pepper to taste and leave at room temperature for at least half an hour.
  2. Heat the oven to 400F. Grease an oven proof pan. Lay the drumsticks in a single layer. Bake on high for the first fifteen minutes, then reduce to 300F and continue to cook for another fifteen, or until almost done.
  3. Then turn on the broiler and place the pan under it. Continue to cook the chicken until it gets a nice colour on both sides (turn them after about five minutes on each side).
  4. Serve with corn sauted with garlic, chilli and green onions and garnished with fresh cilantro and spring onion greens

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.
