Roast Drumstick With Mustard Sauce

We love roast of any kind…especially chicken. I will normally roast chicken legs, drumstick or wings. It is more tasty and flavorful when marinated with special sauces and I for one would like to experiment with all kinds of sauces that I can think of. Creativity has a free hand when it comes to preparing dinner for ourselves. I like simple preparation if possible ! :) Like this roast…one may think it involves a lot of work but it is actually very simple. Just chop up the Italian parsley from the garden and garlic…mix with a spoonful of soft butter and American mild mustard…that’s it , you get the best aromatic marinade sauce for the drumsticks. Stuffed the sauce under the drumstick skin and arrange them on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil. Drizzle olive oil on the drumstick and brush teriyaki honey and soy sauce on each drumstick and baked at 200º C for 40 minutes or until golden . You can keep glazing the drumsticks with the teriyaki sauce every 10 minutes to have a more flavorful and crispy skin.

So dinner tonite is more tasty and this helps sealed Daddy’s lips for the time being LOL! Sweet , herbs scented and finger-licking good pieces of drumstick for dinner and the left-overs can be kept for lunch/dinner the next day. Serve this with garden salad and brown rice. I am sure he has nothing to complain about now….haha now back to baking my cakes and watching HK drama series ‘ Born Rich ’ ….this is how I spend my time after work. Work , exercise and play and BLOGGING suits me well. I love the way I live my life and I have no complain…seriously I wish I have 36 hours a day ! Wishful thinking? Well…everyone must have dreams….. :))

american mild mustard, soft butter, chopped parsley
and chopped garlic - for stuffing under the skin :)
