Winner Winner Chicken Dinner Recipe
fat of choice
(I had beef tallow from the ‘tops’ of making beef stock, so I used that)
chicken drumsticks 1 whole 2 kg chook, cut into pieces
save that carcass for stock!
tomato passata or simply pureed fresh tomatoes
if it’s summer for you!
broth (I used beef broth as it’s what we had just made
read here for broth recipe and tips
, but whatever you have - veggie stock, chicken...)
garlic, smashed and rough chopped
purple onions, rough chopped
dried herb blend
change this bit up each time for different culinary vibes - Italian, French, Greek, Indian, Moroccan
parsley for garnish and freshness at the end
NOTE: If you are super strapped for time – Just bung everything in at the same time and slow cook it in a 150 oven 3 hours, NO LID. It will be delicious.
Sprinkle salt over the drumsticks
Fry the onions and fat in the pan on high
As soon as there’s a bit of sizzle, pop in all the drumsticks
Fry the drumsticks for around 4 minutes, 2 minutes each side
Then sprinkle in the garlic, paprika, turmeric and dried herbs
Then add all the liquids
Then pop in the oven without a lid for minimum 1.5 hours, maximum 3 hours (3 hours they will be falling off the bone) on 170C / 330F
Then pull out and garnish with chopped spring onion and parsley if you have it
Serve with quinoa (you could try my recipe of
quinoa and caramelised onions
without the pesto) or zucchini noodles, or
my cauliflower puree
, buckwheat soba, a salad... You choose.
