Hey everyone. We are back from our honeymoon in South Africa. I honestly do not remember a thing from the wedding just a day prior to our departure. All I can think about right now, are the beautiful lions and leopards from the Safari! As I go through the 1,000's of pictures we took, I just want to go back and watch them in the wild.
Anyway, after we edit down the photos and videos, we will put together some amazing articles and tips for traveling to South Africa. From shark diving to the winelands, you will be amazed at what this lovely country has to offer.
And with that little tease, I will leave you with the first meal I made when we got back. Nothing liked roasted chicken to make you feel at home!
All you need is the type of chicken you want (in this case drumsticks), 1/2 lemon cut into slices/wedges, 5 plum tomatoes quartered, 5 garlic cloves peeled and smashed, fresh rosemary and thyme, salt and pepper, 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 cup white wine.
Just grease the pan with a little Olive Oil, then add the chicken, lemon, garlic and tomato and distribute evenly on pan. Season with salt, pepper, and sprinkle the fresh herbs around the meat. Pour the wine over the chicken evenly. Cut the butter into dabs and put one on each piece of chicken. Let roast in a 375 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes (basting every 10) or until the skin is nice and crispy. Let sit on counter for 5-10 minutes before serving.
