Today, I have for you, a delicious sticky drumsticks recipe – perfect for picnics, a meal, and leftovers are great for school lunches too. They’re budget friendly (even organic drumsticks are quite affordable), super quick to make and something I’m sure the whole family will love.
Why are they healthy?
Most stores bought marinades are a combination of unhealthy ingredients such as sugar, vegetable oils, additives, and preservatives. This homemade marinade demonstrates that healthy doesn’t necessarily mean hours in the kitchen. The marinade is gluten, dairy and has a fructose-free option.
Makes about 12 drumsticks
1 large clove garlic, crushed
60ml (¼ cup) tamari (a wheat-free, natural soy sauce available at the supermarket or health food store)
85g (¼ cup) honey or rice malt syrup (which is fructose-free)
Zest and juice one lemon
If you wanted to BBQ these you could. Just score the meat of each of the drumsticks three times, to allow the marinated to penetrate and to help them to cook through without burning.
Serve and store
Serve with a napkin! Enjoy hot or cold with the tahini yogurt dipping sauce (recipe below). Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
Simple tahini yoghurt dipping sauce
This is a fast and simple accompaniment to the chicken drumsticks.
In a small bowl combine:
1 cup natural or unsweetened Greek yogurt (substitute coconut yoghurt for dairy-free)
2 tablespoons tahini
A good pinch sea salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix until well combined and serve with the drumsticks.
