From Nigella Lawson's "Nigella Express" episode "On The Run"
- 12 chicken drumsticks
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 garlic cloves, smashed
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- Combine all ingredients (use 4 tbsp oil) in a large ziptop bag. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
- Remove chicken from marinade and place in a roasting pan. Drizzle with remaining 2 tbsp oil. Roast in a preheated 425F oven for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
This recipe makes awesome chicken. It comes out moist and flavorful. Slightly sweet from the maple syrup and slightly spicy from the cumin. I make it with Shake and Bake potatoes.
Delicious. I have made this several times now and it has become a family favourite. The combination of flavours is wonderful - creamy yet still light. So easy to prepare too.
