Place the chicken drumsticks in a non-metallic dish and coat in the chilli paste, cut a few slashes across the chicken if you like to allow the flavour to penetrate more. Leave to marinate from 10 mins to 2 hours (in the fridge).
Preheat the oven to 190°C/350°F/Fan 170°C/Gas Mark 5. Transfer the chicken to a foil-lined baking tin and cook in the oven for 35-40 mins until completely cooked through.
