Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Greek Mixture: In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, garlic powder, vegetable oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Using two resealable plastic bags, place drumsticks in one and potatoes in the other. Pour half of the Greek mixture over the chicken and the other half over the potatoes. Toss until the chicken and potatoes are covered and refrigerate for 1 hour, up to 12 hours.

  2. Preheat the BBQ to medium-low heat, around 350°F (177°C). Pour potatoes out of the resealable plastic bag into a foil pouch. Fully seal the pouch. Place the drumsticks directly on the BBQ along with the foil package and cook for a total of 40 minutes, turning the chicken and potatoes at 20 minutes.

  3. Serve drumsticks with potatoes and tzatziki sauce drizzled over top. Garnish with diced chives and lemon wedges.
