I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Spiced Drummies or Wings

This recipe steams the chicken so it's tender, plus the added bonus of getting rid of alot of the fat.

I used 10 chicken drumsticks, but if you're using more just increase the amount of spices and sauce.

Use a broiler pan to steam the chicken.
Fill the bottom part of the broiler pan 2/3 full of water and place in the oven.
Spray the top part with cooking spray. I'm assuming your pan has holes in it for the steam. If not, then use a rack.
Place the drummies on the pan and cover with foil.

Place on top of the water-filled bottom in a 350F oven for 40 minutes. 
When done if you take both pans out, be careful. There'll still be water in the bottom, and it's HOT! Better to just remove the chicken pan. Get the bottom when it cools down.

I should have taken a picture of the water....it was full of fat!
(This method can also be used for ribs)

Spice Mix:
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Put the spice mix together in a bag and shake the chicken pieces in it to coat. Refrigerate until ready to BBQ.

1 tbsp spicy ketchup
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder

Brush on sauce and grill on medium high until heated through and yummy.
