Summer Recipes

Two Ways with Organic Welsh Chicken Drumsticks

We teamed up with Graig Farm to bring you two incredibly delicious summer recipes. With a heatwave promised we’re hoping we get plenty of opportunity to make these several times!

When it comes to cooking during the summer months, only one thing springs to mind, and that’s barbeques! We all love a good old British barbeque. What could be better than sitting the garden with family, friends, or both, sipping on a cold refreshing drink and eating tasty meats? Nothing much can beat it when the sun is shining.

But what’s your meat of choice when it comes to a barbecue? Are you a lover of a burger in a bun or would you rather grill some sausages for a summertime feast? If you love a barbecued chicken and looking for tasty new recipes to try this year, why not give these two Asian inspired recipes by Graig Farm a try? They are a Welsh farm specialising in organic produce, that delivers to homes and the wholesale market throughout the UK. They have won numerous awards for the quality of their products and offer their meats to be delivered in butcher’s wrap, which is plastic free!

So for a more sustainable BBQ this summer, why not opt for Tandoori Chicken or Sweet Chilli BBQ Chicken made with organic chicken drumsticks?
