These salami-stuffed chicken drumsticks are perfect picnic fare – easy to make a day ahead then throw in the car with a bottle of red, a couple of glasses and some serviettes and head out to some pretty spot that feels a million miles away from daily life. One of my favourites is the historic village of St Albans north-west of Sydney – with its early settlers’ cemetery, car ferry river crossing and wetland common, it makes for a perfect day trip. Use one hand to dip the chicken in the egg and the other for the breadcrumbs to avoid crumbing your fingers too much; and use packet breadcrumbs if you prefer. Make some green beans with garlic & mint dressing to take along (see video below, they’re great at room temperature and can be made the day before too) and as for that bottle of red, try the Beaujolais-style Sorrenberg Gamay from Beechworth in Victoria – one of my favourite Aussie reds.
