After a long day in office who wants to slog over the stove? Not me!! But on a Sunday night I do feel like eating something special. And usually that something special ends being ordered from outside and calorie ridden.
Well.....not tonight....I decided to fix up a hassle free low on calorie dinner at home only. Dinner tonight are sticky honey and mustard soy chicken drumsticks with a tomato, cucumber and basil salad.
Believe me......it's super easy.....
Two tablespoon soy sauce
One tablespoon honey
One tablespoon mustard
Two tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
1 big onion sliced thinly
Mix it all up and make deep gashes with a knife on the chicken legs.....marinate the chicken and onions in the soy mix for half hour. Preheat oven and pop the chicken in for 40 mins. Keep turning the chicken to ensure even cooking.
Caution: this recipe is not for people with high bp as soy is high on sodium.....they can skip the soy sauce
For salad...chop tomatoes and cucumber roughly. Tear up a few basil leaves if you have.....if not just a simple tomato cucumber salad with seasoning and lemon juice and olive oil dressing is good.
I made mine a bit exotic....I made dressing out of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Love it....yummy....am trying to post picture too......
