It's been a busy few weeks, what with the school holidays and everything. For some reason I had convinced myself there would be loads of time to do cooking with the kids 2-3 times a week. I was kidding myself! With trips away, day trips, and me working almost every day in between to pay for it all there's been hardly any time to cook WITH them (more a case of quickly whip something together before they start eating the furniture!)
BUT! I've managed to do SOME! Tom chose Chicken Drumsticks! Which luckily is a nice a quick meal without too much fuss. Perfect for a hungry 3 year old (and his brothers)
Chicken Drumsticks with BBQ Sauce
Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cooking Time: 30 mins
8 Chicken Drumsticks
Salt & Pepper
1 tsbp Paprika
4 tbsp Lemon Juice
4 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
4 tbsp Soy Sauce
5 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
1 tsp English Mustard Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 pinch Crushed Chillis
Salt & Pepper
Pre heat the oven to GM 7 / 200c / 400f
Add oil to a roasting tin and heat in the oven
Once hot, add the chicken (be careful of spitting)
Sprinkle over salt & pepper, paprika and lemon juice
Put in oven for 30mins or till juices run clean
Meantime, mix all the sauce ingredients together, mixing well.
It is a good idea to taste the sauce as you go and
alter it according to personal taste, hotter, sweeter etc.
Serve the hot chicken with the sauce on the side.
We also made potato wedges, and Tom heated up a tin of
peas and carrots to serve with it.
The kids LOVED it, and their only complaint was that we didn't make enough!
