At Dad's Table's Family-Friendly BBQ Chicken Drumsticks
Kids will love getting involved in cooking these fun and easy BBQ chicken drumsticks by Adam Shaw, founder of At Dad's Table and author of How to Grow your Family.
With the kids home over the summer holidays, and three meals a day needing to be made, I like to involve them in cooking as much as possible. Mealtimes tend to go more smoothly when I give my children a choice about food and involve them in the preparation.
We will make a meal plan and shopping list, take time looking for the best produce, and then cook together. I always ask my four-year-old to help chop some vegetables (using kid-safe cutlery) or portion some pasta or rice.
This BBQ chicken drumsticks recipe is great to make with the kids over the summer holidays. You can make them outside on the BBQ or in your oven. They are quick, easy and delicious. And with a Thermapen meat thermometer on hand, you can ensure they are safe for everyone to eat while having fun teaching the kids about food safety!
Why I love the Thermapen for family-friendly cooking
It's really important to me that the food I serve my young children and pregnant wife is cooked to a safe temperature.
I use it on everything from sausages on the BBQ to chicken on the hob and roasts in the oven. I love being able to quickly and regularly check the temperature so I know the food I'm serving is safe and cooked just right (no dry chicken with Thermapen!)
The Thermapen ONE reads in one second, which is perfect for quickly taking the temperature of lots of food, like drumsticks.
