I don't make many Nigella recipes as they're usually dripping with fat but this one was easy to adapt. I simply left all the oil out of the recipe!
Before I did the shopping Saturday morning, I checked the fridge and pantry and I had everything I needed apart from the chicken drumsticks. I put the marinade together one night and marinated the chicken for 2 days before I roasted the drumsticks with some of my favourite kipfler potatoes.
My oven is slow so the drumsticks took about an hour before they were ready. I served them with a simple side dish of steamed greens and the chicken legs were delicious. They're garlicky and peppery and I think the maple syrup just helps the skin to turn a lovely golden brown. I can see them appearing regularly on my table.
See you all again on Wednesday,
