Recipe of the Week

This week's recipe is one I have been doing for about 8 years. It is insanely simple to make, and very yummy. Hubby b counts it as one of his favourites, and is most put out if we don't have it once in the week. This is a great one to do on a work night, as there is minimal preparation.
I obtained this recipe all those years ago from our Sunday paper. They had celebrity recipes, and this one was provided by actor/dancer Paul Mercurio (most famous here for Strictly Ballroom, which was directed by Baz Luhrmann, who is more famous for directing Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet).
Anyways, I tend to serve this along with mashed potatoes, steamed corn, and peas. Goes down a treat, even if I do say so myself!

Cajun Chicken Drumsticks

Serves 2

4 chicken drumsticks
1 Tbsp plain flour
2 Tsp onion powder
2 Tsp cayenne pepper (this can be varied, lesser amounts if you don't like hot food)
2 Tsp paprika
2 Tsp garlic powder
2 Tsp ground coriander
1 Tsp salt
3/4 Tsp ground cumin
3/4 Tsp mustard powder

Preheat oven to 200 deg C (392 deg F)

Combine all ingredients, except the chicken, in a clean, dry and intact plastic bag (ie, no holes, or powder goes everywhere!!) Add chicken and shake thoroughly to coat chicken evenly.
Cook on a lightly oiled baking tray. Before putting in the oven, put a knob of margarine or butter on each drumstick.
Cook for 45 minutes. Once done, serve out and pour a little of the juices over the drumsticks, and the mashed potato too if you are so inclined.
