Tonight’s tea was abit of a fail, but abit good too lol.
I had a recipe which used 8 chicken drumsticks in but sounded really tasty! IF I was to have created this dish with the chicken drumsticks it would have cost me a gigantic 19 Pro Points. That certainly wouldn’t have been worth it!
I decided to keep the recipe virtually identical, everything was baked in one tray in the oven, but I replaced the drumsticks with 2 breasts so I obviously lowered the cooking time also!
The problem with lowering the time meant that the potatoes weren’t totally cooked through. On the other hand though, even after cooking the recipe for less time than required…. The green beans were cremated!!
FAIL…. So we had rock hard potatoes, baked to a crisp green beans but perfectly moist tasty chicken in a lovely sauce!
I THINK…. With a slightly altered method of cooking this meal would be delicious!

If there is one thing in my kitchen I could not live without it would be my thermometer! I bought this 2 years ago for about £2.00 off Ebay and have used it hundreds of time since, especially when cooking chicken! My mum pulled faces at the time that I had paid so little for it and bought it from Honk Kong. This little thing has never let me down and is still running on the battery that it came with. This is the one that I bought -
I also have a little graph in my kitchen of meat cooking temperatures so I know which various meats cook at which temperatures. I would say that 75% of people tend to over cook meat without even realising it! The great thing with these little gadgets is that you can check it without cutting your meat in half or leaving it in for longer than it needs!
I would recommend one of these to everybody.
Give this recipe a try, it is really tasty!
