GLUTEN-FREE, GRAIN-FREE, REFINED SUGAR-FREE, SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET (SCD)
I love chicken drumsticks. We eat a lot of chicken in our house and drumsticks are so tastier and cheaper than chicken breasts. My local supermarket often does really good offers on free-range drumsticks so we stock up and freeze them when we can. The idea for these yoghurt marinated chicken drumsticks was inspired by my Indian butter chicken recipe. I couldn’t believe how delicious and tender the chicken was after marinating it the yoghurt so I began having some fun with different recipe ideas. These were a big hit!
I think it’s fair to call myself a foodie. My food obsession runs deep especially since starting the SCD almost two years ago. I’m the type that is just finished my breakfast and I’m thinking about what to make for lunch and dinner. Eliminating grains and processed foods has forced me to be more creative and imaginative with food. I love nothing more than the challenge of coming up with a delicious dinner from the ingredients in my fridge and pantry. As a point, I make one dinner for my family every night. Usually, I cook pasta, rice, potatoes or another grain for my husband and daughter. SCD has had a positive impact on our family’s overall health as we all eat a lot more vegetables than before.
When cooking from jars and packets is no longer an option, you actually get quite resourceful. I can whip up a dinner from scratch now much quicker than before. I’m also more comfortable using herbs and spices as seasonings. Just leave me in the kitchen with my spice rack and my herb garden outside and I’m a happy lady! These yoghurt marinated chicken drumsticks are easy and quick enough to make mid-week. The recipe says to marinate the drumsticks for four hours but leaving them in the marinade overnight if you can is even better. Try serving these with some roasted butternut squash and grilled asparagus.
