While I know it not exactly BBQ weather quite yet and we’re only just in the transition period between winter and spring, I couldn’t help myself and get into the summer BBQ period last week by cooking some homemade chicken drum-stick. Richard had a mate round to talk all thing techie and geeky so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity and it so simple to do, here what I did.
Step 1: Goes to a supermarket and buy some chicken drumstick.
Step 2: Come home and lay out the drumstick on a roasting tin.
Step 3: Simple marinade it to a flavoring of your choice – I did mine in Nando Medium Peri Peri, completely cover the chicken making sure you haven’t left any. If it any easier you can use a bowl.
Step 4: I covered mine with cling films but the best option is cover it in a sandwich bag, once marinaded you need to cover it to help lock in the flavor so do that with all the drumsticks.
Step 5: Leave it overnight or for 6 hours in the fridge or in a cool kitchen cardboard.
Step 6: Once you left it, take it out and take off the cling film or whatever protected covering you use.
Step 7: Cook it in the roasting tin for 30-40 mins (read the instructions).
Step 8: Remove from oven and they should be golden brown and smelling amazing.
Step 9: Serve – please bare in mind this could get messy!
So yeah not exactly a domestic goddess type cooking, none the less they are fun to cook when you have company and why in all honestly do you really need to wait for BBQ weather?
