A twist on an Old Classic

How many times have we heard someone go “taste just like chicken”? It’s not out of mere chance that most people regard chicken as the superior of meats, both in its flavour and versatility. Whichever way it is prepared, a good chicken always renders its amazing savor to the condiments it is cooked in/with. While many of us are familiar with the basic roast chicken, with a little bit of lemon, garlic and rosemary, this recipe gambles with a more interesting set of ingredients. To satisfy our ever inquisitive tongues and spice craving palates, we devised this devil of a marinade that certainly packs a punch!

Roast Chicken in a Herb and Mustard Marinade


3 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons of sour cream

A bay leaf

½ teaspoon of dried thyme                    

½ teaspoon of dried basil

A pinch of pepper

A pinch of salt

A pinch of ground nutmeg

6 chicken drumsticks

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a baking dish, following the order at which they have been listed above. Once they have reached a uniformed colour and consistency, drop the chicken pieces in and evenly coat them with the marinade. Stick it into the oven for about 30 minutes and you have a classic old favourite with a twist. If you want them nicely browned, just brush some honey over each piece about 10 minutes before taking them out. Enjoy!

Eat well…. because life’s too short not to!
