Curried Mayonnaise Roasted Chicken Drumsticks

No oil or butter, the fat in Mayo is good enough for the roast. The egg in Mayo helps in giving good flavor and browning the drumsticks. I use this marinade most of the time . The base of the marination is mayo and if don’t have curry powder then just add your favorite herb or seasoning to it and you are good to go.

  • Remove marinated chicken from refrigerator and bring into room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degree celsius.
  • Shake off any extra marinade and arrange the drumsticks in a single layer in a oven proof dish (Cast iron works best).
  • In the remaining marinade toss quartered Onions (You can also add par cooked potatoes, carrots and peppers). Arrange on the baking dish.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.


Note : I have used Eastern Chicken Masala. If you are in India you have plenty of option for curry powder. If the curry powder that you are using is very strong and of intense flavour then adjust the quantity as per preference. There are few curry powders that has turmeric in it, if so then skip adding turmeric to it.

    @carol Thanks a lot. I am sorry but I don’t have any idea what a ingredients pink Mayo has. If there no spice added to the mayo itself then I would suggest you add spices. An extra dose of seasoning is needed.
