Since last night’s dinner was a fail, I was on the hook to come up w/ something more palatable to the family.
I’m marinating chicken drumsticks in a yogurt – spice- and Turkish masala marinade. Will update w/ recipe and reviews!

 

Hi there!!

Everyone seemed to like this new recipe, so here goes!

Ingredients:

Method:

1) Mix all marinade ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Add the drumsticks, and mix to coat well.

2) Marinate the chicken  for 2 – 4 hours in the fridge.  Take out the chicken about 45 minutes before you are ready to bake.
