Prep Time : 1:25 | Cook Time : 0:20 | Total Time : 1:45 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 8 chicken drumsticks

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil

  • Salt and cracked black pepper

  • 2 cobs of corn, husks removed

  • 1 avocado, peeled, halved, stoned removed, chopped

  • 1 red capsicum, seeded and chopped

  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, extra

  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

  • Salsa, to serve

  • Sour cream, to serve

  • Lime wedges, to serve


  • Step 1

    Score the chicken by making a few deep cuts through the skin. Combine the Cajun spice, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and rub over the chicken, pressing the Cajun mixture into the cuts. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Step 2

    Heat a grill plate or barbecue grill to high. Brush the corn with a little oil and place on the heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally, or until slightly charred. Remove and set aside until cool enough to handle.

  • Step 3

    Reduce the barbecue grill to medium. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade and cook for 8-10 minutes until well browned and cooked through.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, stand a corn cob on its base and shear the kernels off with a sharp knife. Place kernels in a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining corn cob. Add the capsicum, coriander, extra oil, lime juice, salt and pepper, to the corn kernels, mixing until well combined.

  • Step 5

    Serve chicken with salsa, sour cream and lime wedges.
