    In a medium bowl combine the garlic, parsley, lemon rind, 3/4 juice of 1 lemon and olive oil. (Alternatively, the marinade can be made by pulsing ingredients together in a food processor until just combined). Score the drumsticks by making 2 slits about 2 cm apart on both sides of the drumstick with a sharp knife. Place the drumsticks in a large bowl and pour half of the parsley mixture over the chicken, reserve other half of the marinade. Mix well then cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

    Preheat a barbecue grill to medium high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook the drumsticks on the hot grill for 15-20 mins until the chicken is cooked through to the bone, or an internal temperature of 75°C.
