Gluten-free Drunken Drummies

I often cook chicken, as you will see from the recipe index. Chicken is one of those meats that is very versatile.  Depending on the recipe, it cooks reasonably quickly; and is great as a snack or main dish.

This recipe uses red wine as both a tenderiser and to add a lovely flavour to the drumsticks.
