1. Garlic-stuffed chicken drumsticks with carrots
This is a dish that requires very little preparation time and around an hour and a half of baking in the oven on 400 degrees Fahrenheit. First, preheat the oven.
You’ll need as many chicken drumsticks as there are people you’re preparing this for. Make small cuts into each drumstick and stuff the little holes with small pieces of garlic, and then massage salt and pepper into each drumstick. Grease up the casserole or a metal pan which can go into the oven (preferably one that has a cover), but just with a small amount of butter, oil or grease so that the ingredients don’t stick. Put the stuffed meat into the pan/casserole and then peel the carrots (as many as you want) and wash them well. You can cut them into thick circles or length/wise – it’s up to you. Sort the carrots around and besides the meat and cover the pan/casserole. You don’t have to put salt on the carrots – they will soak it up from the liquid the chicken drumsticks release. After an hour and a half it will be ready to serve. Eat the drumsticks without the skin if you want to lower the caloric intake.
