Barbecue chicken Drumsticks

Hey lovelies

Did you feel that little bit of sunshine today?

it’s something we haven’t felt in ages,

Jes doesn’t it really do you the world of good

ah I’m sick of it, sick of the snow, the cold, the dark and dreary days of the longest winter of all time.

So today I ran with the little bit of sunshine and made a batch of my barbeque chicken drumsticks.

Drumsticks are really economical, you can pick them up for around €3 in any supermarket.

(But sometimes when you pick them up you can be a bit baffled on what to do with them)

I’ve got the answer right here

My homemade barbeque rub and glaze are really easy to throw together and by cutting all the skin off your cutting the fat too.

By baking them in the oven your finished drumstick is succulent, juicy  with a distinctive  smokey and sweet barbecue flavour

when I’m serving younger kids I usually cut the chicken off the bone, but any school goers will love picking it up and chomping it off the bone caveman style

These are delicious served with wedges, corn on the cob and salad

I can’t wait to hear how your gang gets on with this one, get in touch via the Facebook page or even join in the crac over in the home cooks Ireland group
