Chicken Drumettes in Lime & Garlic

I love these little chicken wing drumsticks – they’re like delicious little meat lollipops. The lime in this permeates the chicken and leaves a tang with every mouthful. Luckily I’d only bought a kilo of them however as by the end of the meal neither Brendan or myself were in any mood to stop, which could have proven dangerous. Great to share, but even better for a night in on your own with a bottle of beer and a DVD.

1kg chicken wing drummers
2 garlic cloves (mashed)
1 teaspoon salt
2 limes (zest and juice of)
2 tablespoons kecap manis’
3 tablespoons peanut oil

Combine the garlic, salt, lime juice and kecap manis and peanut oil. Place the drummers in a large plastic bag then pour over the marinade. Toss around to coat all the meat then tie the bag, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, 24 hours is even better.

Heat a hot grill or BBQ and cook the chicken for 10-15 minutes, turning constantly to char the skin.

I served mine with a delicious satay sauce and indonesian fried rice.
