I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy Paleo recipes. Who isn’t? But lately it’s been of paramount importance to me. I’ve been a really busy bee and haven’t really wanted to spend hours making shopping lists, shopping and cooking sophisticated meals.
One evening, I opened my fridge, took stock of what I had, and decided to improvise a bit. I was so happy with the end result that I decided to share it with all of you!
As drumsticks are generally cheaper than chicken thighs or any other meat, this is a great meal if you are on a budget. If you find them on a special deal, even better! It’s also so easy to prepare that even a total beginner can prepare it and show off their cooking skills to the whole world.
All the colours of different vegetables make the dish really appealing to the eye. It looks very autumn-winter appropriate as well! And feel free to swap the vegetables for anything else, e.g. pumpkin is in season and could be a wonderful addition.
So what are you waiting for? Try it out tonight!
