Jan Braai’s garlic and peri peri chicken drumsticks

Need a simple, speedy marinade for your bird on the braai? Try Jan Braai’s garlic and peri peri chicken drumsticks. “The incision to the bone of each drumstick ensures they will braai quicker than usual, and can be cooked at the same time as chops or boerewors,” advises Jan.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: Up to 2 hours for marinading

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes


12 chicken
6 peeled cloves of garlic
peri peri spice rub


Use a sharp knife and make one cut along the bone of each drumstick.

Place a halved garlic clove in each of the drumsticks, pressing it into the meat through the slit.

Rub peri peri spice into the exposed parts of meat, and sprinkle some onto the skin if you have extra. Cover the chicken and leave it to marinade for 20 minutes to 2 hours.

Braai the drumsticks over medium coals for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning regularly.
