2 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp olive oil

The chicken drummettes are made in the following way:
Select 20 chicken wings. Cut the first joint of each chicken wing and discard wing tips. Holding small end of second joint, cut, scrape, and push meat down to thick end. Pull skin and meat over end of bone with fingers to resemble baby drum drumsticks. Cut off knuckle end with scissors or knife. Repeat for the remaining wings.
