Place the chicken drummettes in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside.
For the tandoori masala:
Pour the tandoori masala over the chicken drummettes; turn chicken drummettes to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange as many of the chicken drummettes on the unheated rack of a broiler pan as will fit in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to broil. Broil chicken 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and pieces just start to blacken, turning once halfway through broiling.
Transfer drummettes to a serving platter. Repeat baking and broiling the remaining chicken. If desired, serve with lemon and red onion wedges. Makes 16 servings (about 3 drummettes each).
*Test Kitchen Tip:
If you cannot find chicken drumettes, use 25 chicken wings instead. Cut off and discard tips of chicken wings. Cut wings at joints to form 50 pieces.
