This is an American favourite and a true palate puncher! Adjust the amounts of hot sauce and cayenne pepper to the dish, or remove it completely and still enjoy the flavours.

¼ tsp, (cayenne)

Garlic powder or flakes

¼ tsp

Table salt, non-iodised

¼ tsp, (1 pinch)

Skinless chicken drumstick

  1. Combine the flour, pepper, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Line a baking tray with baking paper and add chicken in a single layer. Cover. Place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Combine the hot sauce and the melted spread in a small bowl. Coat the chicken pieces, one at a time, in the hot sauce mixture. Return to the tray. Spoon over any remaining hot sauce mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the rocket, capsicum, avocado and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Serve the chicken with the rocket salad, ranch dressing and lemon wedges.
