Preparation steps

1.

Wash the chiles, cut in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Slice very thinly. Rinse the rosemary, pat dry, and chop 4 of the finely.

2.

Whisk together the lemon juice, chopped chillies, chopped rosemary and olive oil in a bowl until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the chicken drumsticks and refrigerate for at least 1 1/2 hours, turning the chicken once. 

3.

Preheat the oven to 200 °C (approximately 400°F). 

4.

Bake the chicken, in the marinade, for 45 minutes, until crispy, basting every now and then with the marinade. Garnish with remaining rosemary sprigs and serve hot.
