“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Meat „
When I buy cooked chicken drumsticks I usually get the Chinese ones from Tesco but they was on a good special offer a couple of weeks ago so I got a pack of the plain roast ones to try.
The drumsticks are quite small but you get quite a few of them, they're ready to eat or you can warm them up in the oven. I had one cold with a bit of salt over it and it was yummy, the skin has got a wicked roast flavour but the chicken was a bit dry I thought.
They take about 30 mins in the oven and it makes the skin a lot better, it doesn't go crispy but gets a wicked greasy feel to it that makes it taste and feel loads nicer. There's loads of meat on the drumsticks and it's not all gristle or anything, you get 2 big bites of chicken and then LOADS more if you spend time nibbling! lol
They're cooked ok but I think they do need the extra time in your oven at home because it makes them go extra tender and then they taste fresh. I reckon you could have these on a dinner with potatoes, vegetables and gravy. I haven't done that because when I had them I just cooked them up to munch on through the night, even though they had gone cold again the drumsticks tasted nicer than when they was cold out of the fridge.
I don't think I'd pay the full price for them, they're £3.00 and that's dear for small drumsticks. You'd get a nicer taste if you cooked your own drumsticks and it would work out cheaper as well. When my mum does a party for my sister's she gets a massive bag of drumsticks from the butcher for the same amount of money and cooks them herself to feed everyone, you'd need a couple of packs of these at least for a buffet and then it would start working out dear.
Recommended... but a dear way to buy chicken drumsticks!
