There is a phrase (winner, winner, chicken dinner) that has gained sudden popularity or regained, I imagine, as it seems to have originated in the 70’s or there abouts. I hate it, it is one of those nonsense things that should not bother me but it really does and then I get annoyed at myself for being annoyed, vicious circle….
anyway, while I struggle with my little neurosis it at least brings me to todays meal…
8 chicken drumsticks
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
