Grilled Chicken Drumsticks

I finally found some time to cook last week and it took an interim of a few more busy days before I managed to find the time to upload my photos and blog about it! Work's been crazy!

I bought some chicken drumsticks the other day and decided to try A's recipe for the chicken wings we had in Sydney. Note: Carrefour's chicken drumsticks are so much bigger and fresher than Giant's! I remember attempting to buy chicken in Giant once and the whole chicken chiller smelt bad! *shudder* I meant to grill them on Wednesday night but got home late so these babies marinated for 2 whole nights before I grilled them on Friday! And all the lovely marinade had seeped into the meat, giving it a really nice taste.

While they were grilling, I blanched up some chopped zucchini, tore up some lettuce, caramelised some onions, hardboiled some eggs and threw the whole lot together with some cherry tomatoes for our fibre fix. Easy peasy!

Fresh garden salad, dotted with crispy cherry tomatoes and hearty chunks of hard-boiled egg; lightly flavoured with smokey caramelised onions.

A simple but nice meal to come home to after a long week!

nice..whats with the skinless thingy. Think it will be better with the skin. Diet, eh ?

The salad is wonderfully coloured and sweet by the ingredient. I would have grilled the cherry tomato as well for easier digestion. Hmmmph...guess age makes a difference....chuckle

Attempting to diet, Foodcrazee! I have an aversion to chicken skin though :p

Grilled tomatoes! What a great idea! Ok, I'll try that the next time! Thanks for the idea...and you're not that old la...

ooh, very nice and I agree, longer marinating time allows for a really well-flavored and tender chicken meat!
