Butcher Of The Year
Winner of Seven
great taste awards
Recipe: Roast Chicken Drumsticks with parsley and garlic


1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp butter
12-16 chicken drumsticks
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice


Season and fry. Heat a large, heavy-based lidded casserole or frying pan over a moderate heat. Add the oil and half the butter. Generously season the drumsticks with salt and pepper. When the butter is foaming, drop in the drumsticks, and fry until lightly browned all over.

Cover and cook. Cover the casserole with a lid and leave the drumstiks to fry gently for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly. Remove the lid and add the remaining butter, along with the garlic, parsley and lemon juice. Take the casserole off the heat and leave the flavours to infuse for a few minutes before serving.
