Roast Drumsticks

I always have some drumsticks and chicken wings stored in the freezer, because you can always whip up some quick and easy dinner with these ingredients. Also, the drumsticks and wings are always on specials at Woolworths or Lennards. I can get them for $2.99 a kilo most of the time :)

Some nights, I will just get some drumsticks out, prepare for the next night's dinner so that I can have an easy evening by putting everything into the oven when I get home and diner will be served in an hour :p

This is just a very typical, simple roast drumsticks I make from time to time and the left over is great for lunch the next day with some green salad.

2 tsp five-spice powder
3 cloves chopped garlin
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
black pepper
2 tspn dark soy sauce
Marinate over night for the ebst results. :)
I will often put a layer of sliced sweet potato under the drumstick, when the drumsticks are cooked, the sweet potato slices are full of flavour and absorb all the chicken juices and marinate...Yum!
You can also put some potato, carrots, capsicum on a separate plate and put them in the oven with the chicken. So, one meal can be cooked at the same time :)
