Hello and welcome to “Your Weekly Feed” this is the shinier and newer version of Quick, What’s for Dinner Tonight? and we are coming to you on a Sunday night to help with your dinner inspiration over the week.  I’m delighted to be collaborating with the clever and talented Kim from The Land of Zonkt to co-host this new weekly link up for every day meals.

Deciding what’s for dinner every night can be tough and shall we say a tad tedious at times and so we are hoping that Your Weekly Feed will become a great resource for you to get meal inspiration and help you plan your week.

As a reader we are hoping that you will get exposed to lots of new meal ideas and foodie blogs and if you have a recipe to share please email us and it may even feature it on our blogs.

As a blogger this is a place for favourite recipes to be linked up, if it works in your house it just might work in another, what’s your “go to” meal, what do you have that’s quick and easy, what do you have when there’s nothing left in the house to eat, what’s your kids favourites, what’s your favourite?  Tell all and share some of the meal love around, we all need to get dinner on the table each night we may as well be doing it together!!

To get the “Your Weekly Feed” party started I’m plating up Rosemary & Proscuitto Chicken Drumsticks with creamy brown rice.

It could be called a fancy meal on a budget so a good one if you are having friends over for “early dinner” with kids (like we are tonight) or just smartening up a mid week meal.  The only down side to this one is if you are 6 and just lost both your front teeth, it’s kinda hard to chew it off the bone (at least it made her use her cutlery!).  Here’s what you do;

Rosemary & Prosciutto Chicken Drumsticks with creamy brown rice

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh rosemary stalks
  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 C brown rice (or whatever rice you like, or pasta)

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 head cauliflower, finely chopped
  • 1/2 head broccoli, finely chopped
  • 300 ml cream
  • 1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill in the oven (250 C) Line a baking tray with baking paper and then put on the grill rack.
  2. Cook the rice as per packet instructions as brown rice can take up to 40 minutes to cook
  3. Put one sprig of rosemary on each of the drumsticks and wrap with the prosciutto.
  4. Put the drumsticks on the grill tray and cook under the grill for 5 minutes, turn over and cook for a further 5 minutes on the other side. cover the chicken with foil and then bake in the oven on 180 C for 25 - 30 minutes.
  5. With 5 minutes to go for the rice to cook add the cauliflower and broccoli to the pot or rice cooker and then drain once cooked
  6. In a frypan heat the oil saute the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent. Add the cream and chilli (if using) and simmer until it begins to thicken.
  7. Add the rice, broccoli & cauliflower to the cream with the tomatoes and half the thyme, cook stirring through until the tomatoes are soft.
  8. Put the rice mix in bowls and top with the chicken, sprinkle with the remaining thyme.
