Everyone seems to love chicken drumsticks as much as I do, which is great because I feel like I could develop endless recipes for them. This recipe for Indian Spiced Chicken Drumsticks uses my favourite technique of roasting the chicken at a high temperature to crisp up the skin – which you’ll remember from the classic Thyme Chicken Drumsticks. With this recipe, I’ve decided to explore some deeper flavours; cumin, turmeric and ginger are the stars of this recipe.
In other news, this little gal turns two today (remember when she could fit in a boot?)! Doesn’t she look adorable in her new sweater? It’s like it was made for her. I’m obsessed. Soph is just the cutest.
