Irene's Roast Chicken Drumsticks with Honey Kumara
These chicken drumsticks with honey kumara are so delicious that as soon as you put them on the table they will disappear, as if by command of a magician's wand. They are that good!
Harrington's dry cured loin bacon 250g, trimmed & chopped
50g of whitestone slated butter, softened.
2T chopped spring onions
Salt & pepper
1kg of chicken drumsticks (will be 8-10 drumsticks)
500g golden kumara peeled & chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
1 T honey
1 T olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the bacon, butter, spring onions, salt & pepper in a bowl and mix well to combine. Gently ease the skin away from the chicken flesh and spread the bacon mixture between the meat and skin.
Place the kumara, garlic, honey & olive oil in a bowl & toss to coat.
Put the kumara and chicken in a baking dish lined with baking paper and roast for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the kumura is tender.
Serve up with fresh baby spinach or whatever vegetables are your current family favourites.
