What an exceptional recipe! I made this last night for the BF and I, and it was like a gourmet dinner at a restaurant! I used a red bell pepper instead of green, and added an extra lemon because was too lazy to get the zest, used 2 tsps of oregano, and instead of lemon pepper used black pepper. YUMMY! I only wished I would have added more bell peppers because we love our veggies. Served this with steamed veggies and Jasmine rice. Excellent. Thanks for posting.

Absolutely delicious and oh so easy to put together, I did 6 drumsticks for 3 of us though did the full recipe as written - the only point I was not sure of was the oregano/zest mix which I sprinkled on both sides of the drumsticks before spraying with the olive oil. Thank you PaulaG for a delicious recipe, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #81 October 2013.
