The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Heat a large, heavy-based lidded casserole or frying pan over a moderate heat. Add the oil and half the butter. Generously season the drumsticks with salt and pepper. When the butter is foaming, drop in the drumsticks, and fry until lightly browned all over.
Cover the casserole with a lid and leave the drumsticks to fry gently for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly. Remove the lid and add the remaining butter, along with the garlic, parsley and lemon juice. Take the casserole off the heat and leave the flavours to infuse for a few minutes before serving.
