1 carrot

preparation:

Clean the chicken legs with water. Dry them with kitchen paper. Prepare a marinade from oil (I used hemp oil), spices, salt and pepper. Leave the chicken legs to draw.
The marinaded chicken legs can now be barbecued. If you have an oven with a grill function you can also grill them in the oven. It will take about 29 minutes until they are done.
The side dish this time is a fruity millet salad which can be prepared while the drumsticks are in the oven. Here’s how you do it:
Put millet and the peeled carrot in a pot. Add water until the millet and carrot are covered. Bring this to the boil, the leave it to simmer. Meanwhile peel the garlic and chop it, then add it. Clean the spring onion and zucchini. Chop the zucchini to dices and the spring onion to rings.
Leave the millet salad to simmer until the water is gone. Just before all the water is gone add zucchini, spring onion and 2 tbsp. of coconut oil.
Clean the raspberries respectively currants.
Serve the chicken drumsticks with millet salad, fruits and cranberry or currant jam.

I’ve shared the meal with the cats 😉 The portion looks huge on the pictures, yet, when shared it becomes “normal”size again. On this picture our cat Momo tried self-service…

BBQ season…

Grilled chicken drumsticks in self-made marinade 

preparation time:

ca. 35 minutes

difficulty:

simple


ingredients for 2-4 people:

6-8 chicken legs
oil (e.g. thistle or hemp oil)
spices you like (e.g. southernwood, thyme, rosemary, juniper, etc.)
salt and pepper

preparation:

Wash the chicken legs and dab them dry with kitchen paper. Mix the marinade with oil and spices in a bowl. Leave the chicken legs to draw.

Tip: If you would like to have the spices more “spicy” 😉 buy them whole and pestle them in a mortar (see picture above).

The marinaded chicken legs can now be barbecued. If you have an oven with a grill function you can also grill them in the oven. It will take about 29 minutes until they are done.

A possible side dish to the drumsticks is rice + vegetables (you can find a food list here). Fresh salad, e.g. rocket or lettuce, radishes, etc. might work, too.
The usual barbecue sauces you can purchase should be avoided though. They often contain vinegar which is high in histamine. If the chicken drumsticks are too dry you might want to try some drops of maple syrup or some cream cheese to them instead.
 

Enjoy!
