This is a really delicious, and unusual recipe which is sure to impress!

I normally do not buy chicken with skin, however for this recipe you need drumsticks that still have the skin on.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes plus standing time
Serves: 2 - 3

4 rashers short cut bacon, chopped very small
1 small shallot -or ½ small white onion
¼ cup macadamia nuts, chopped finely
2 tbsp parsley, chopped finely
6 chicken drumsticks, skin on
1 tsp thyme
¾ tbsp lemon juice

Heat about a tbsp of oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the onion and cook for a minute.

Add the bacon and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring continuously, until the onion is soft.

Add the macadamia nuts and the parsley, and stir to mix for a minute.

Remove from the heat and set aside till cool.


Carefully pull back the skin from each drumstick without tearing it.

Cut a deep cut into the thickest part of the meat.

Put about a tbsp of the bacon stuffing into this hole.


Press the meat back together and pull the skin back over it.

Use a toothpick to help fasten the skin.

Arrange them in a baking dish.

Mix the thyme, lemon juice and about 1 ½ tbsp olive oil together.

Brush this over the drumsticks, turning them so they are coated all over.


Cover with Glad Wrap, and put in the fridge for 3 hours or so.

Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced. Cook the chicken for about 35 - 40 minutes or until it is golden and cooked through.

I had quite a lot of the bacon mixture left, so I poured this over about 5 minutes before the chicken was cooked.


I then served it with cauliflower rice.
