The kids love chicken, and as we eat it at least twice a week, I'm having to come up with new recipes to keep them interested and at the same time allow them to try new flavours. Presenting them with something new is always a bit nerve-wracking. They're usually look at the plate sceptically, take a surreptitious sniff and then ask, "What's the dinner called?" (I kid you not!) This is usually followed by the tiniest nibble and then I patiently await their verdict (Believe me, my eyes are rolling on the inside!).
My latest chicken recipe uses drumsticks as I remember loving to eat these as a child. The kids loved them as they were allowed to use their fingers to hold the chicken, a bit like the cave men in The Croods. I used some manuka honey and grain mustard and the result was an absolute hit! These taste fantastic either hot or cold, so are perfect for picnics.
