Buy More, Save More

You get 3-5 bone-in skin-on chicken drumsticks in a convenient 500g vacuum pack. The chicken is naturally slow grown and therefore the meat is much healthier, better formed, tastier, and juicier than commodity chicken. 

When it comes to chicken meat for a BBQ, drumsticks are the most popular choice and fly off the plate. Chicken drumsticks are super easy to prepare and taste delicious. This will be your favorite dish for your late weeknight meal. Drumsticks are so popular that there are literally millions of recipes online. See our recipe at the bottom of this page. Please note that our drumsticks are not the Japanese smaller Tebamoto drumsticks/drumettes that are usually found in Japan. Our drumsticks are the much larger and meatier version that is commonly available outside of Japan. Find the smaller drumettes aka. Chicken Tebamoto here.

Chicken Drumstick Recipe Instructions

チキンドラムスティックのレシピ

Completely defrost chicken drumsticks and pat dry with a paper towel. All you need is sea salt, paprika powder, garlic, olive oil, black pepper and lemon. 

チキンドラムスティックのレシピ

Mix well. There is no need to over spice, a couple of pinches of each spice is sufficient. Crush and mince two garlic knobs and gently rub the chicken. The paprika powder is not spicy and suitable for kids. If you want spicy drumsticks to add just a little bit of cayenne powder. 

Leave the drumsticks to marinade in the fridge for 30 min or place in a ziplock bag and keep refrigerated for up to 24h max. Before cooking, heat up the skillet or fry pan to very hot, then add extra virgin olive oil and then the drumsticks. This makes the skin crispy and darker in color. Keep rotating for about 5 min. 

Now reduce heat to low and let the drumsticks cook slowly but thoroughly. We recommend adding a lid for shorter cooking times and juicier meat. If you prefer crispy, cook without a lid on low heat, keep rotating so they cook evenly. 

Serve while hot and with wedges of lemon, great and healthy salad without dressing and barbeque sauce. 

Some people worry about the pinkish color around the bones. This is not blood but myoglobin. No matter how long you cook the chicken, the color will not change. If the meat is cooked until the color is white and the internal temperature has reached at least 70 degrees Celsius the meat is safe to eat.

It’s a regular item in my freezer

Translated from Japanese: I buy it every month. It's always available in the freezer, so it's convenient even when you can't go shopping.
It’s a 2 piece pack, so it’s easy to use. If you cook them all together, you can prepare them quickly even on a busy morning, which will save you time.

I cooked it in a frying pan

Translated from Japanese: I hesitated several times, but I finally gave it a try.
After thawing the meat in the refrigerator, I sprinkled it with salt and cooked it in a frying pan with olive oil.
After the skin turned brown, I turned it over and to cook the other side and finally steamed it over low heat for 10 minutes.
The moment I cut it with a knife, put it in my mouth and chewed it, I realized the difference.
It was firm and chewy, not dry and had the original taste of chicken.
Chicken tastes exactly like this.
I'm exercising a lot, so I think it's very filling.
I usually changed my eating habits mainly to vegetarian diet, but sometimes I want to eat meat.
In that case, I’d like to have meat that is safe and makes you feel like you cherish life.
Thank you for the good meat ✨

Safe and delicious

Translated from Japanese: I use simple seasoning and I cook it in various ways such as simmering with vegetables and stir-frying. I’m glad that I can enjoy it with no worries.

Y

Translated from Japanese: I’ve been ordering it many times. Any dish with it is delicious. Even if fried, it’s soft and recently I’ve been eating it as yakitori. It's too delicious. Chicken thighs can be troublesome to process, but this chicken doesn’t need any preparation and you can cut it to the size you want to eat or cook it as it is, so it's not only delicious, but it's also convenient.

Y

Translated from Japanese: I have purchased it many times. It's really delicious. It’s a type of chicken that does not smell like chicken and is elegant. I don't really like fried chicken or cooked chicken the next day because it smells, but this chicken thigh is good to eat the next day. The taste of the meat itself is very delicious.

Translated from Japanese: I deliciously steamed it with salt, pepper and white wine while it was frozen. I had a good meal.
The sizes of the fillets are quite different, so I reduced my review by one star.

Scale check is required

Translated from Japanese: The taste is solid. It seems to be easy to dry and it seems that it’s suitable for cooking such as steaming, frying or sautéing with butter to trap the water. It's also nice to have a sense of security that something with such high safety is frozen and therefore always available.
The processing content said that it had a peeling process, so when I put it in a shabu-shabu pot as it was, it became covered with scales ^^; Doesn't the fact that the scales are attached mean that they have not been processed at all?

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: I had it sautéed and in a stew.
I was worried that there would be fish scales.
It tastes better than the same deep-sea fish cod (from the supermarket).

Sometimes I can feel a slight fishy smell, so I’d like to try other cooking methods.

Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: It's my first time trying it.
It was very delicious when seasoned with organic butter and soy sauce! I will buy it again.

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: It’s a very elegant white fish with no odor and a soft texture. It doesn’t shrink even when boiled, sautéed or fried and it looks elegant after cooking, so I use it as the main dish for guests. It’s a fish that will impress your guests.
Since it’s a deep-sea fish that is related to cod, the taste is very similar to cod and it’s slightly pale and has a mild flavor, so I recommend using seasonings such as butter, herbs and spices to add accents.

So big it surprised me

Translated from Japanese: The legs are very big and fine. They’re filling.
Because it’s chicken raised by Bostock Brothers, it’s very delicious just like the other kinds!
In terms of size, it seems that there will be a lot of turns for celebrations.
I thought it was necessary to carefully check the inside while cooking because they’re so big.
Thank you to Horizon Farms and Bostock Brothers.

I’m impressed!

Translated from Japanese: I think it’s my first time eating free-range chicken. The shape was firm and it felt really filling. This amount of deliciousness surprised me! I’m shocked. I might not be able to have chicken from the supermarket anymore. I’m really thankful that you’re providing organic meat at an affordable price.

Translated from Japanese: I have been very curious about this one, so I’m ordering it together with the chicken liver which I had before. Our oven is not in a good condition, so I boiled it like samgyetang (a dish)! The part it was cut from is different (from what is used for samgyetang), but without fail I could make a delicious soup. The meat itself had no bad smell, was soft and really delicious.

The flavor of chicken is wow!!!

Translated from Japanese: I added simple flavors like onion, salt and pepper and baked it in the oven until turned brown. My husband also said “How is this meat so delicious!” in shock while eating. This meat’s level is so high it made us not want to eat it from anywhere else. Next time, I want to try a different kind of seasoning, so I will order again!
