This recipe was passed down from my Nana to my mom to me. When my mom was explaining the directions to me over the phone the night before, she remembered that this is how she learned the recipe from her mother too. As far as I know, my family has been making soy sauce chicken drumsticks and potatoes for decades without ever writing down the recipe. As this is one of my favorite ways to eat chicken and I’m a little bit absent-minded, I’ve got to write it down. For posterity.
One of my boyfriend’s coworkers invited us for a barbeque on Long Island this weekend and we were asked to bring a side dish. It won’t be an ordinary cookout with hot dogs and burgers though– they will be roasting a whole (!) lamb.
So what do you bring as a side dish to a non-ordinary barbeque? It has to be something nobody else will think to bring too. Ever showed up to a BBQ with potato salad, only to discover there’s already 2 other variations of it there? I’m not looking to be that awkward third-potato-salad-bringer. Plus, I don’t even know how to make potato salad which means I’d have to stop at Whole Foods. Nah. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s an adult-only BBQ, which means a bag of Doritos isn’t going to cut it either, as much as I wish it would… what to bring, what to bring.
