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
Coarse breadcrumbs
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
