  • Step 1.

    Begin by preheating your oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  • Step 2.

    In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, chipotle powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  • Step 3.

    Coat the chicken drumsticks evenly with the spice mixture, then arrange them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Step 4.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the skin is crispy.
  • Step 5.

    While the chicken is baking, finely chop a handful of fresh coriander.
  • Step 6.

    Once the chicken is done, remove from the oven and immediately squeeze fresh lime juice over the drumsticks.
