Baked Chicken Drumsticks

In case you haven’t guessed by now, we love white meat hence the reason the blog is filled with chicken and fish recipes.

Some time last I was craving some chicken and I thought of preparing this to serve with ugali and sukuma wiki. Sadly the supermarket was out of chicken legs so I decided to buy the drumsticks instead and with that my menu changed 🙂

Still not sure of how to prepare the drumsticks I googled various recipes and settled on a hybrid of a few of them.

Ingredients:

500 gm chicken drumsticks – about 6, washed and patted dry

3 tablespoons all purpose flour

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon butter, I used unsalted

Equipment:

Baking dish

Aluminium foil

Ziploc bag/ paper bag

Start by pre heating your oven  at 425°F or 220°C

Baking chicken can be a bit messy especially when it comes to cleaning up, so line your baking dish with some aluminium foil.

In the ziploc bag, mix in the dry ingredients. Then add the chicken drumsticks. Shake and coat well.

Put the butter on the lined baking dish and put it in the oven for the butter to melt.

Remove from the oven and arrange the  coated drumsticks.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until  juices from the thickest part of the drumstick run clear.

After half the baking time, flip over the drumsticks to get the other side cooked.

Once cooked remove from the oven and cover with an aluminium foil for about 10 minutes, this helps to keep the chicken moist.

Remember the trick with the aluminium foil? Look at my baking dish post baking.

Tada! Easy clean up.

I served the chicken with some baked sweet potatoes and sukuma wiki.

The chicken was super moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I think next time I’ll play around with other types of spices.

I was gifted some salmon by @ibrahims_butchery and I made it for dinner.
They currently have an offer on salmon. 

It's my first time making salmon, yep! 

It's a play on garlic butter salmon though I used olive oil instead since I didn't have butter.

Absolutely delicious.

I served with lyonnaise potatoes (recipe on my feed) and some garlicky french beans (recipe in my cookbook)

Reason 1564 you need a Dutch oven.
No knead artisan bread.

Made this for the first time today, process in my stories. I loved the outcome, I'm making another one.

The Dutch oven I used is a beautiful teal colour. It's 26cm. It's by @bonappetitkenya

When you have all the ingredients on hand, magic ensues.

This is my take on an elevated hot dog.

Used cheese krainers from @taliofoodco , brown samoons from @carrefourkenya 
I also cooked some onions, they weren't fully caramelised as I didn't want to spend so much time in the kitchen.

For avocado, I smashed it with the back of a spoon. I didn't add any salt as the cheese krainer is sufficient.
Then some arugula.

The mustard is totally optional.

Since the krainer is cheesy, when you bit into it you get some cheesy goodness which is such a pleasant surprise.

What are you adding in your elevated hot dog?
