  • Chicken Drumsticks: 7 pieces
  • Tomato Paste: 2 tablespoons
  • Olive Oil: 3 tablespoons
  • Seasonings: Salt, Black Pepper, Curry, Thyme (adjust to taste)
  • Hot Water: 200 ml
  • Potatoes: 3, cut into wedges
  • Carrots: 4, sliced
  • Red Onion: 1, chopped
  • Paprika (vegetable): 1, sliced
  • Garlic Cloves: 5, minced
  • Onion: 1, diced
  • Zucchini: 1, sliced
  • Eggplant: 1, cubed
  • Tomato Sauce: 100 ml


  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).
    • In a large bowl, mix the tomato paste, olive oil, salt, black pepper, curry, and thyme. Stir until well combined.
  2. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Add the chicken drumsticks to the bowl and toss them until they are fully coated with the marinade. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes. For deeper flavor, marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • While the chicken is marinating, prepare your vegetables as described in the ingredients list.
  4. Assemble for Baking:
    • In a large baking dish, spread the potatoes, carrots, red onion, paprika, garlic, onion, zucchini, and eggplant evenly.
    • Place the marinated chicken drumsticks on top of the vegetables.
    • Pour the hot water around the chicken and vegetables in the dish. This will help to create a moist environment for the chicken and vegetables to cook in.
    • Drizzle the tomato sauce over the chicken and vegetables.
  5. Baking:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes.
    • After 45 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and the vegetables are tender.
  6. Serving:
    • Let the dish rest for a few minutes after taking it out of the oven.
    • Serve warm, ensuring each plate gets a portion of chicken and a generous helping of the roasted vegetables.


  • For an extra kick, add a pinch of chili flakes to the marinade.
  • If you prefer your vegetables with a bit more crunch, add them to the baking dish 15 minutes after the chicken has started cooking.

Enjoy your flavorful and nutritious chicken drumsticks dish, perfect for a cozy family dinner!
