Rose’s Sweet Chicken Drums

Rose’s Sweet Chicken Drums


Serves: 4+  Cooking Time: 1.5-2 hours  Cost: 10.00

A platter of these delicious chicken drums will go down a treat at your next party!

Ingredients: 

  • Rose's Easy one minute, 3 ingredient Marinade! 
  • 4 heaped tablespoons of any flavoured marmalade, add 100ml warm water and form a syrupy mixture
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce  
Marinade drums for at least an hour - better overnight in the fridge if possible.
  • 2-3 drums p/p ~ a pack of 10-12 drumsticks is ideal

Method:

  • Loosen the orange marmalade with a little warm water to form a syrup. 
  • Mix in the ginger.
  • Put drumsticks into a strong sealable bag and pour in ½ the marinade mixture. Save the other half for   basting during the cooking process. 
  • Line a fry pan with baking paper – easy clean-up, saves a massive mess!
  • Put pan on a slow/medium heat – slow cooking enhances the flavour and the stove top makes for easy basting. 
  • Place drums in the pan and pour in any juices left in the bag – too good to waste! Cover loosely with   foil – do not seal! Leave room at sides of pan for steam to escape. 
  • Cook for at least 2 hours turning regular and basting, brushing the remaining mixture onto the           drums every fifteen minutes. Once the mixture is used up, baste with the juices in the pan. 
  • Once cooked thoroughly, transfer to platter and serve warm. 

Fantastic finger food, messy but oh-sooo delicious at a barbecue or picnic! Great easy platter to share with friends – no fuss cooking for a fabulous result!
Photo will come next time - forgot to take one when I made them, silly me!
