I grew up being taught the importance of good cooking and eating, and certainly know the difference between a courgette and cucumber.
Upon arriving at university three years ago, I was quite surprised at how many people didn't know how to cook, or didn't like to cook citing excuses such as, "I don't have time" or "It's too expensive".
I live in a student flat with my brother and we do all the cooking in the flat (which we like doing) and we manage to put up fairly decent meals every night on a student budget.
It can be done with no excuses and is easy - check out my YouTube clip below.
To start off, here's a recipe for garlic and basil crumbed chicken drumsticks.
|chicken Drumsticks - approximately 12 pieces (although I cooked 20)|
|3 large eggs|
|1 teaspoon paprika - optional|
|Salt and Pepper|
|3-4 Tablespoons melted butter (extra if needed)|
|3 cloves of garlic mince|
|1 large handful of fresh basil - coarsely chopped|
|Bake in an oven for 50-60 mins at 180 degrees Celsius as per this video|
