8 chicken drumsticks (take skin off)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp thyme
1 tbsp of lemon juice
Place the drumsticks into a container and coat with olive oil and all other ingredients. Cover and marinate for at 4 hours in a refrigerator.
Set your grill to 400-450 degrees. Brush grates with olive oil to ensure non-stick surface. Place drumsticks onto the grill and close the lid. Grill for 10-12 minutes per side for a total of 20-24 minutes depending on the thickness of your drumsticks. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove from grill and let sit for approximately 5 minutes to let juices settle back into chicken.
Serve with mashed potatoes or a side of veggies!!
