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 wheat-free soy sauce 45 mL
1 tbsp olive oil, to grease the sheet 15 mL
4 tsp Dijon mustard 20 g
2 tbsp white wine 30 mL
1/3 cup cornmeal (polenta) 45 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
aluminum foil

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 cornmeal in another bowl. For each drumstick, roll it in cornmeal, 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.
