Julie's Drumsticks

Tonight's recipe comes from Julie Van Rosendaal, whose "reality cookbook" was the inspiration for this blog. Dinner with Julie is not only a kitchen diary of daily meals, but a handy archive of delicious recipes with useful tips for leftovers. I felt safe in her hands for my second foray into cooking chicken: Spicy, Sticky Drumsticks.

You can find the marinade recipe here. I went with dark maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, and made sure not to trim any of the fat or skin. As for the fearsome chicken-cooking, I broiled the drumsticks over the course of 20 minutes, taking them out twice to add more marinade and turn them over. Success! Quick, easy success. Served with roasted veggies. I was tempted to try the Roasted Chick Peas with Garlic and Chard as a side, but let's get real. The fact that I cooked at all is good enough for now.

Today is Day 337 of Julie's year in her kitchen. I've been an avid reader of the blog, and the internet will lose a bit of its lustre when it comes to an end in January. Never fear though, Michelle-Meals will still be going strong.
