I’ve been going through my folder of recipes recently and have come across a few old favourites – like these devilled drumsticks. I have my mum to thank for many of these recipes – she photocopied them for me when I first moved to Paris in 1995 – not that I had a kitchen big enough to cook in back then! They have accompanied me all the way to Toronto where I pull them out every now and then and make an “oldie but a goodie”. This recipe is not one I had made before and it’s written out in my mum’s handwriting – looking suspiciously like she copied it out of a magazine, so I have no way of giving any credit where it’s due. I loved the idea of a quick comfort stew-type dish with chicken, tomatoes and honey and I especially liked the addition of ginger and cinnamon – it lends a little Moroccan flavour to the dish which I complemented by adding some lemon zest and serving it atop fluffy couscous. It’s a wonderful bowl of flavour on a cold winter’s night.
It’s so very quick and easy and guess what? It tastes even better the next day 🙂 This one is a keeper – I’ll definitely be adding it to our “make it on Sunday to enjoy through the week” roster 🙂
