Chicken drumsticks are a real barbecue favourite and this recipe uses a delicious lemon and herb marinade that's going to give that chicken a really zingy flavour.

They couldn't be easier to make, either - the secret is in marinading the meat in the fridge for a couple of hours beforehand as this lets the flavour really seep in.
