Orange, Garlic and Soy Chicken Drumsticks

Chicken drumsticks are syn free on extra easy, so how about cooking up a batch as snacks for when your peckish.
These drumsticks are marinaded in just orange juice, light soy sauce and garlic and it adds such a depth of flavour. Unfortunately you have to syn the orange juice, but it adds hardly any syns to the drumsticks.
In fact some would argue that as your not actually eating/drinking the orange juice, you may not need to syn it.
I made a batch of 9 drumsticks and it works out as 0.2 syns per drumstick, so the choice of syning is totally up to you. You could marinade a lot more drumsticks in that amount of marinade.

Preheat oven 200c, 400f, gas mark 5


9 chicken drumsticks skin removed
100 ml orange juice 2 syns
100 ml light soy sauce
2 garlic cloves grated


In a large zip lock bag mix the orange juice, soy sauce and garlic, add the chicken and rub the marinade in, marinade the chicken over night.
Lay the drumsticks out on a tray sprayed with frylight, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
