How to Make Baked Chicken Drumsticks with Apple and Nuts

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 1 hour
  • Cooking 1 hour

We clean the thighs removing if they had any down or burning them on the fire and mark them in a dish suitable for the oven, until they are slightly golden. We reserve the thighs and fry the finely chopped onion and leek over low heat until they start to caramelize. Reintegrate the thighs and put them in the preheated oven at 180º with heat up and down.

We hydrate the prunes and raisins in warm water. When the thighs have been in the oven for 20 minutes, add the plums, the raisins, the sliced ​​almonds and the pine nuts, turning the chicken pieces so that they brown on the other side.

We also incorporate the broth and sweet wine and let the chicken cook for another 20 minutes. As we turn the chicken slices, we will get them to brown evenly while they cook and take on the flavors of all the ingredients.

Peel the apple and cut it into wedges, to make them look like potatoes for garnish. We add them to our roast and turn the chicken slices again. We leave another ten minutes and gratinate another three minutes more so that the apples that will already be well roasted take a golden color.
