Rosemary Chicken & Steamed Broccoli

This was part of our Christmas feast of 2010. After I exhausted my existence as a garlic fairy (I think we collectively peeled and minced at least 5 balls of garlic–a semi-frightening amount, even for us), there wasn’t enough room for all of us to be in the kitchen. Thus, I was exiled to the table to eat all the chicken I could stuff down my throat. A fine trade, if you ask me, since I’d had nothing to eat other than a 波萝包 at 10 a.m. (It was 8 p.m. I’m not sure how I was still alive and kickin’, but my body never fails to amaze me.) On my first round, I had four drumsticks, 1/4 the broccoli, 3 pieces of lamb, a full plate of potatoes, a bowl of soup, a fat slice of garlic bread, a bowl of pesto pasta, and a slice of pie with ice cream. (insert happy sigh here)

Rosemary Chicken Drumsticks

-garlic, minced
-chicken drumsticks
-beaten egg
-panko breadcrumbs
-rosemary and thyme, chopped
-salt and pepper to taste
-olive oil (a few drizzles)

1) Put salt and pepper in the flour, beaten egg, and panko breadcrumbs. Put garlic, rosemary, thyme, and a few drizzles of olive oil in the panko breadcrumbs and mix.
2) Coat drumsticks in flour, then egg, then the panko mixture. Put on a sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees F until cooked (~40 minutes to an hour). Check on them after ~40 minutes so they don’t dry up too much.

Steamed Broccoli

-…a bunch of broccoli

1) Wash broccoli and break into bite-sized florets.
2) Bring 3/4 to an inch of water to a boil. Steam broccoli.
3) Yay, eat!
