Yum my mouth is watering.
Not sure if I’ve mentioned this to you before, but Honey is addicted to Alton Brown of the Food Network. We have some of his cookbooks and tools. I, on the other hand, fell in love with Giada De Laurentis. Who hasn't? Well Alton Brown's recipe for chicken spice is amazing and will have you licking your lips for more.
You will need
2 cups low fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 broiler and chicken drumsticks
A lot of napkins
Combine paprika, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Place chicken drumsticks on top of some tin foil and sprinkle heavily with chicken spice mixture. Drumsticks will have a reddish-orange color to them. Next place your drumsticks into a plastic Ziploc bag and cover them completely with the low fat buttermilk. For best results refrigerate overnight.
The next day cover the bottom tray of your broiler with tin foil (so it can collect the juices) and turn on your broiler. Remove your buttermilk soaked and spiced drumsticks from the Ziploc bag and carefully place them on top of the tin foil.
Cook chicken until golden brown or burnt on each side, approximately 10 minutes per side. Be sure to pick up your drumsticks with tongs and add a vegetable dish on the side. Once the broiler has cooled, you can carefully fold up the tin foil with the chicken juices and throw away. Now your broiler should be easy to clean up.
And enjoy this yummy chicken recipe without the guilt of frying. Do you have recipe ideas that you can change to meet your New Year’s resolution? Half the fat, but still tastes great... let me know sweetie.
