1 resealable plastic bag    
8 chicken drumsticks   900 g
1/2 onions, finely chopped   100 g
2 cloves garlic, minced    
1/3 cup canola oil   85 mL
3 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium   45 mL
1 tbsp olive oil, to grease the sheet   15 mL
4 tsp Dijon mustard   20 mL

Before you start

The drumsticks must be marinated overnight.


  1. Place the drumsticks in a resealable plastic bag. Finely chop the onion and mince the garlic, then add them to a bowl. Pour in the canola oil and soy sauce, then mix well. Pour the mixture into the bag, then seal it and turn it to coat the drumsticks with the marinade. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Brush generously with olive oil.
  3. Combine the mustard and wine in a large bowl. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade, scrape off any onion and garlic, then add the drumsticks to the bowl. Toss well to coat. Add salt and pepper. Put the bread crumbs in another bowl. For each drumstick, roll it in bread crumbs, coating it lightly but evenly, then transfer it to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 45 min. Increase heat to 205°C/400°F and continue to bake about 15 min, until the drumsticks are evenly browned and cooked through. It is not necessary to turn them.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.


The drumsticks may be marinated in advance and kept frozen, then pulled out when needed for a quick dinner.
