Cooking with Chicken Drumsticks
The beauty of chicken drumsticks is their adaptability to be used in a myriad of recipes. Whether baked, grilled, or slow-cooked, here are some general cooking tips for our free range chicken drumsticks:
Baking: Preheat your oven to 200°C. Season the free range chicken drumsticks as desired and place them on a baking tray. Bake for about 45 minutes or until fully cooked.
Grilling/BBQ: Ensure your grill/BBQ is preheated. Season the drumsticks and place them on the grill, turning occasionally for even cooking. This should take about 25-30 minutes.
Slow-Cooking: Perfect for curries and stews. Brown the drumsticks first in a pan, then transfer to a slow cooker with your choice of sauce or broth. Let it simmer until the meat is tender and fully cooked.
