These bold and tangy Caribbean citrus flavors make these chicken drumsticks a staple in the kitchen!


My wife and I love making different variations of chicken drumsticks, They are delicious, affordable, and pretty easy to make. I love Caribbean flavors because of their pop. The lime, orange, and ginger combination provides for a fresh, comfort taste. Enjoy these as much as we do!
