Meal Planning Monday (19 November 2012)

On last week's meal plan we had cowboy chicken which proved quite popular and I said I would post the recipe.  So here it is, it's so easy and simple and really quite yummy!

It's meant to be made with chicken drumsticks but I'm not a fan of chicken on the bone so I always use chicken breasts.  Works either way.

- chicken drumsticks
- 2 lemons
- 1 tbsp clear honey
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- black pepper and mixed herbs

Put chicken breast in an ovenproof dish.  Squeeze the lemons, drizzle the honey and crush the garlic over them.  Season with pepper and mixed herbs.  Marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.

When you're ready, put them in the oven (covered otherwise they'll dry out) at 180 C and cook for around 40 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.


This week's meal plan is a bit scrappy.  It's the week before payday which as usual means using up all the remaining bits and pieces in the freezer and cupboards.
