An old friend requested for roast chicken when I visited her some weeks back . She said any form of roast will do. She has a sudden craving for roast chicken. I promised to bring her some roast chicken when I next visit her. Thus, I made this special bacon wrapped roast drumsticks for her. I deboned the drumsticks and marinated with salt and pepper overnight and a dash of cooking wine. Before roasting in the oven, I wrapped the marinated drumstick with a piece of bacon. The bacon helps to keep the drumstick moist and tender and the crispy bacon adds flavor to the roast drumstick. The rosemary are from the garden. Before roasting, I added a tsp of butter and a sprig of rosemary on each wrapped drumstick. I assure you , the aroma of rosemary get infused into the drumstick as it is roasting in the oven. The moment I opened the oven door....the aroma of roasted bacon filled the air and gosh it was really good. I kept some for ourselves and two for my dear friend.
these are ready for delivery :)
