Preparation

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the broiler to high. Put the drumsticks in a medium bowl. Drizzle them with the olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle in the cumin, chili powder, sugar, 1/2  tsp. salt, and a few grinds of pepper; toss again to coat evenly. Arrange the drumsticks on a wire rack set over a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil the chicken in  the center of the oven, turning once after 10  minutes, until fully cooked and browned in spots, about 20  minutes total.
  • While the chicken cooks, gently mix the tomatoes, avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and 1 tsp. salt in a mixing or serving bowl. Serve alongside the chicken.

Serve with black beans and rice or tortilla chips.

    My son-in-law prepared this last night and it was delicious enough that I am archiving the recipe. The only changes he made...grilling the chicken legs on the bar-b-que and adding salty cotija cheese to the tomato salad. Yummy and quick.

    This was really good! I used thighs as well as drumsticks and everyone loved it! perfect summer grill recipe.

    Delicious recipe. The flavors are wonderful together. Quick and easy. Even my picky 7 year old loves the chicken. My husband hates avocado, but he raves about the meal. I make some changes. I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I grill them instead of broil. Serve with rice and black beans.
