This Sunday is Father's Day for the Australian. Chicken is the most popular meat and my husband will not sick of having chicken everyday. This chicken drumstick would be a great dish to give the male a treat! The original recipe use tahini (sesame paste) but I replace that with peanut butter and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the roasted chicken instead of baked with it coated. After all these modification, I could't think of a name to it but I love this Asian kind of twisted dish!
Have a happy Father's Day!
