#BEDM DAY 27: National Barbecue Week

So apparently it's national barbecue week. Can someone please inform the weather? Ignoring the rain, I'm going to share with you my barbecue secret. Marinade marinade marinade. 

Here's an awesome Slimming World barbecue recipe that I tried a few months ago (no pics of my own sorry!) and am desperate to try again on a real barbecue!

Green Curry Chicken Drumsticks


  • 8 large, skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 150g fat free natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 5 tbsp finely chopped coriander
  • 5 tbsp finely chopped mint
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. With a sharp knife, make a few cuts in the flesh of each drumstick.
  2. Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until fairly smooth. Transfer to a wide ceramic bowl and season to taste.
  3. Add the drumsticks to the marinade, rubbing the mixture well into the meat. If you have time, cover and chill for 1-2 hours or overnight if time permits.
  4. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade, shaking off the excess. Cook them on the barbecue for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through. "
Let me know if you try it! What's your favourite thing to cook at a barbecue?
