Chicken Drumsticks

  • 1 -1.5lbs of Chicken Drumsticks

A drumstick might be the quintessential cut for fried chicken or any other hand-held dish - and why not? The bone that runs through it keeps it moist while cooking and easy to hold on to. The drumstick is located on the lower part of a chicken leg, from the knee to the ankle, and has less meat than the thigh but is easier to hold and is packed flavour. Kingsland Hutterite Colony chickens are raised in New Dayton, AB on a vegetable and grain mixed diet. Their flocks are "free-run", meaning they're kept in open areas with all the fresh air they want. Drumsticks are for the dark meat poultry lovers out there.

COOKING TIP: This versatile cut has a long list of cooking options so you'll never get bored. Fry it. Bake it. Grill it. Slow cook it. If you're looking for a simple, quick marinade, go for some lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Then pop them in the oven and the only thing you have to do next is, well, eat them.
