Mmm… sticky, sweet and tangy. Who doesn’t like barbecue sauce? Chicken, plentiful and easy to prepare, why not combine the two, together? And with that thought in mind, and inspired partially by last months bbq ribs recipe, this leads us onto this weeks recipe. You don’t need to restrict yourself to just the drumsticks, I went for convenience and the fact they were cheap to buy, feel free to mix and match with different cuts, such as wings, thighs and breast for a leaner option, though I’d probably keep the skin on for that slight crispy factor you get, when the good sauce, starts to caramelise and fill the room with that sweet, sweet aroma.
For those of you that regularly follow this site, you might of wondered what happened to all that wonderful chicken, that was poached to make the Chicken Corn Soup, after all you can’t possible cook a whole chicken and just eat the breast meat? Well you’re quite right, following in from part of the recipe, my mother wouldn’t let me growing up waste such good food, so it was a matter of waste not want not, with the recipe of the week, being a slightly more unusual dish if you’re not used to South East Asian cuisine, shredded chicken and jelly fish salad. Normally jelly fish alone, is fairly neutral in taste, it does however have quite a interesting crunchy texture to it, so a little sesame seed oil and seasoning can go a long way, for this light and tasty salad. As it’s a salad, once you’ve shredded the chicken it’s quite quick to make and perfect as a Summer time dish. So without further ado, read, enjoy and cook.
