These drumsticks are so yummy – very flavorful and lemony.  I doubled the recipe for our tailgate crowd.

2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
2 TBSP coarsely chopped fresh oregano
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp coarse kosher salt
1 tsp finely grated lemon peel
8 chicken drumsticks

Whisk first 6 ingredients in small bowl.

Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Pour marinade into 1-gallon resealable plastic bag or large container; add chicken and seal. Turn bag to coat chicken.

Marinate at room temperature 30 minutes or in refrigerator up to 2 days, turning occasionally.
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Place chicken, with some marinade still clinging, on grill rack; grill chicken until cooked through and golden brown on all sides, turning frequently, about 30 minutes. Transfer to plates and serve. I always double or triple this recipe – these will go very fast!
