Savory Peach Chicken Drumsticks

I just came back from our Canadian staycation. We spent a week at our friends in Toronto and I could’t come back home without visiting Niagara-on-the-lake, where the best Canadian peaches are grown. As a result I brought home four huge boxes of perfectly ripe, sweet and juicy peaches. Look at this beauty!

A part of peaches were put in the fridge, another part was used for a confiture. I still had a lot of peaches left and drosophila flies started behaving like it was their and not my kitchen.

I started looking for some ideas that wouldn’t be desserts. After checking a few recipes, I made my own version of Savory Peach Chicken Drumsticks.

Sorry for the messy photos. I just didn’t have time for nicer ones. I had to feed the family. And by the way the family was so happy about this peachy dinner. I wonder how come with so many peach orchards in Moldova, we don’t have any traditional salty dishes in our cuisine! Let’s save one good recipe!
