Butterflied Chicken Drumsticks and Salsa Verde
Crispy and Flavourful Butterflied Chicken Drumsticks with Lane's Cubano and Fresh Salsa Verde - a perfect combination of zesty and savory flavours to tantalize your taste buds!
- 8 Chicken Drumsticks
- 1 Handful Parsley
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1 Lemon
- 2 tbs Mayonnaise
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
4 tbs Lane’s Cubano Rub
- Handful Fried Shallots
- To make the salsa verde, blend together parsley, garlic, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until you achieve a smooth consistency. It's recommended to add half of the oil first and then adjust to your desired texture.
- Next, butterfly the drumsticks along the bone and coat them fully with olive oil and Lane’s Cubano Rub.
- Heat a pan over medium-high heat and start cooking the chicken with the bone side down. Use a brush to paint the chicken with your salsa verde marinade, reserving half of it for later.
- Once the chicken turns golden brown, let it rest for 5 minutes before adding more salsa and fried onions for presentation.
