Drum Chicken

Cornish hen Drummeties:

Rock Cornish Hen – Grilled Wings. Drum Chicken. Chicken Wings. Grilled Chicken Wings. Baked n Broiled Chicken Wings.

Another Restaurant special, liked by all! Chicken Drummeties…interesting name, as they resemble the drum’s stick!! This is served as an appetizer in many restaurants in India. I really never thought of fixing it at home…thought it could be time consuming process! But finally made my mind and started saving Cornish hen wings each time. Yeah…I don’t like the usual chicken anymore. Cornish game hen in an interesting variation with less fat and gamier meat!! Well, it was easy to flip them up one day and sear the skin from one end and pull them towards the other end! Making it as little drummeties is not a big deal, very easy! Then marinate them in your favourite spices and either grill or bake+broil them!!


Chicken Wings 12-16
Ginger-garlic paste 1 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Egg white 1 spoon
Soy sauce 1 spoon
Chili sauce 1 spoon
Corn flour 2-4 spoons
Yogurt 1 spoon
Lemon juice 1 spoon


Marinate the drum chicken in all the above mentioned items…for a complete 2 hours.

Grill them in a charcoal oven. Or one can bake them in conventional oven and take it to broiling briefly later…to get that charred effect!

Good to go as an appetizers.
