Chicken Legs Wrapped In Bacon 5 0 5 1

This recipe is SO simple, SO tasty and SO impressive on a plate. I put the drumsticks in the oven at the end to crisp the bacon while the sauce thickens but this is not necessary. Warning: This is very filling!!!

How good is this one..
The Potatoes alone were terrific but added the drumsticks and flavour topped the meal off great..
I have made variations of this one but decided to stick to the original recipe here on this one and I was glad I did..
All plates were cleaned up with only the bone left-over..
I added about 3 Tbs of cream to the potatoes to give it a creamier texture and served with Steamed Broccoli and Carrots as I had no Silverbeet..
I added approximately 50/50 of water and Juice to boil the Potatoes..
Will definitely be having this one again…!
