These Chicken Drumsticks with Dill and Red Chili Pepper are the result of quite possibly one of the easiest recipes I have ever made up. I had to rush because I had to do a podcast with Ronsley on Bond Appetit last year and I had some fresh chicken drumsticks and zero ideas. I rarely make chicken with skin on but Dre likes it and I found this to be a delicious recipe for those who don't even usually like skin (aka- me). I have made this only twice but the second time I made it while out in the country at our Uncle and Aunt's with a bell pepper risotto and Mmmph!- WHAT a combo. In fact it was so popular I made some more again the next day for lunch before we drove back. Andre and I loved cooking together with fresh ingredients that weekend- oh- how I miss it- need to go back asap!
So if you're looking to impress, make this super easy chicken and spend that extra time on the risotto (that recipe will need the extra time) and your husband, wife, or guests will be raving for weeks. Oh and by the way, this tastes just as amazing with chicken leg quarters- that is what I did the 2nd time around- so just adjust the recipe accordingly.
Let me know how it turned out!
P.S: All you need is this and some lovely French bread to soak up the flavors.
Lettuce Fish Tacos. Sounds delicious.... NOT!!!! I just think of the ONLY knock knock joke I have for some reason managed to remember all these years.
Aehemmm........Yes, that's the only Knock Knock joke I remember from when I was a kid. Anyways!
Fish tacos, sure, many people love em, but you gotta try the lettuce version, and a GOOD version before attempting to make something like this at home. I was convinced about fish tacos after having delicious ones at Chantecler in downtown T.O- YUM! and even more delicious ones at a small pizzeria in West downtown of all places. The restaurant ones are infinitely better than mine I won't lie, but I want to encourage you to experiment at home like I am doing at the moment to try and come up with a recipe for these that YOU love. I like them super tangy thus the inclusion of lots of lemon plus I cooked my fish but some recipes (the really yummy ones of course) use ceviche. I am not there yet- I leave the raw fish prep to the experts..............For now that is! Enjoy and lemme know what kind of variations you came up with.
Remember- this is SUPER healthy!

Roasted chicken has to be moist, tender, juicy and well marinated. This recipe is extremely easy and is made using very few ingredients. I had the butcher put deep BBQ cuts in the whole chicken and take the skin off. It is important to take it out of the oven and leave it covered with foil for at least 15 minutes before serving. This way the chicken is tender and moist when you serve it. I served it with steamed vegetables, but you can always have it with a salad or anything else that you like. If you are on a low carb diet then this is perfect for you. You can make the whole chicken, shred it and keep it in an air tight container in the refrigerator and eat with salad or by itself whenever you are hungry.
Sounds fancy huh? Nope, this is the tawdry, “makes you gasp” version of a gorgeous salad I once had at a restaurant where I was served Arugula with delicious aged cheddar, sliced strawberries, a little blue cheese, almonds, and some other lovely ingredients. But, let’s be honest, no one is fancy on a daily basis. We eat a lot of salad and though we like our classics, we experiment with some very simple ideas all the time. This was one such time. This was ridiculously delicious, so stop freaking out at the “faux” vinaigrette. Lazy Wednesdays call for experimentation and easy alternatives. No measurements given as it all depends on your taste.
