Basil chicken ham. Recipe

The basil chicken ham recipe It is an economical recipe, tasty and very rich. It looks great thanks to basil, a very fresh herb that gives a picantillo touch. It is also one of the juiciest I've tried a while ago.

If we don't like basil, we can substitute rosemary, thyme, etc.

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 8 chicken drumsticks, 1 lemon, 4 cloves of garlic, sprigs of basil, pepper, olive oil and salt.
