I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Buttermilk Roast Chicken

Buttermilk Roast Chicken from Nigella Express
serves 6

12 chicken drumsticks (about 3lbs weight)
2 C buttermilk
1/4 C plus 2 Tb vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, bruised and skins removed
1 Tb crushed peppercorns
1 Tb kosher salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 Tb maple syrup

Place chicken in large bag.  Add buttermilk and 1/4 C oil.

Add garlic, peppercorns, and salt.  Sprinkle in cumin and syrup.  Squish everything together to mix and coat chicken.

Leave in fridge over night or at least30-60 minutes on the counter.

Preheat oven for 425.  Take chicken out of bag, shaking off excess marinade.  Arrange in a foil-lined roasting pan.

Drizzle over remaining 2 Tb of oil and roast for 30 minutes or until brown and juicy.
