I LOVE grilling!
Seriously… everything tastes so much better when it’s grilled! This easy, flavorful chicken marinade for drumsticks is so perfectly keto! And versatile? Absolutely! Use this marinade on chicken breasts, wings, and more!
Hip Tip: For a southwestern variation of this marinade, try subbing lime juice for the lemon juice and fresh cilantro for the oregano.

This recipe is perfect for grilling, but you can also use your air fryer!
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano (fresh would be even better!)
- 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
- 12 chicken drumsticks, raw
My family loves this recipe!
You can even make these chicken drummies in your air fryer using these instructions if you don’t feel like grilling. Want some added zip? Toss your wings and drumsticks with Franks wing sauce.
I love that it’s such a simple recipe and SO easy to change up for taste. And even if you forget to pull the chicken out of the marinade right away, that’s okay. The longer it steeps, the more vibrant the flavors! Enjoy!
