Whenever I stick something in a marinade I am always very pleased with the results. It is such an easy way to infuse flavour, I have no idea why I don’t do it more often. When my social support bubble were coming for a picnic a few Saturdays ago, on the night before, I got a big bowl, made Karen’s marinade and chucked loads of chicken drumsticks in it. Then I bunged the drummers in the fridge to absorb the magic overnight. They were delicious and to me, a chicken drumstick, like a Tessie O’Shea Scotch Egg is definitely PICNIC FODDER. Finger food innit?

Writing this post is now making me want to have another picnic. Who wants to come over?
