Paprika-baked chicken with Pan-baked scones

Chicken drumsticks and scones, baked together in a large pan, make an excellent casual meal that can be taken outside in the garden, or on the patio. A salad or corn on the cob will complete an easy dinner!

Ingredients

  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp castor sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic pepper
  • Other spices as you like

Cooking Process
Pre-heat the oven.

  1. Put the oil and butter in large (and I do mean large) roasting dish and put it in the oven to melt.
  2.  Once it’s melted, turn the chicken pieces in the oil, and push them up one end of the pan.
  3.  Mix the dry ingredients and sprinkle over the chicken pieces, turning so all sides are coated.
    Cook for 20 minutes.
  4.  Turn. Cook five minutes.
  5.  Add the scones and cook another 15 minutes. (If the chicken is cooked first, remove from pan). Pan-baked Scones
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk (approx)

Cooking Process


  1. Put the flour in a bowl.
  2.  Add the milk to the melted butter and mix to the flour with a knife. (Adjust milk / flour if required).
    Roll out thinner than usual on a floured board.
  3.  Cut into 12-16 scones.
  4. Turn in the buttery chicken juices, then place fairly close together in one end of the pan.
  5.  Bake until lightly browned top and bottom (approx 15 minutes).

Variation:

Replace the drumsticks with other chicken pieces. Alter the times to suit.
