Dear Home Ec 101,
The store had a fantastic sale on both drumsticks and chicken thighs. Now, I have a lot of chicken, but I need to make sure it’s not boring. Suggestions?
The great thing about chicken is its mild flavor. With its fairly neutral taste, you can use the same basic technique for very different results.
Marinate and then bake (350F for 45 minutes) or grill. If you bake the chicken consider broiling for the last few minutes to crisp the skin.
Here are some marinade suggestions:
- Italian dressing
- Buffalo sauce
- Carmelized Garlic Chicken
- Greek chicken – olive oil, oregano, lemon juice
- Barbecue sauce
- Use the raspberry sauce in the this recipe and lightly season the chicken with poultry seasoning before baking (sage, thyme, and marjoram)
- Garlic and Soy Chicken
For other ideas, we have a restaurant chain in the area that boasts 31 flavors of wings.
