Return to the village chicken - summer mixer # 2

Back in 2010 I blogged about a childhood favourite, resurrected in my mind by a chance meeting with a Rick Stein recipe book - Sticky chookRecent parlays with family in the UK has once again got me on the chicken train.  Sticky chicken drumsticks are such a winner.  Easy, tasty, kids love them, the list goes on.  The only downside is you get very sticky fingers eating them, but that's hardly a deal-breaker (hell, who am I kidding, for some that would be a deal-maker!).  

So anyhoo, having seen photos of Mark and Cindy's chicken culinary creations, I decided it was time our rotisserie had it's turn too (ha ha, no pun intended, but loving it!).  To give a nod to the season, we had ours with zucchini from the garden and fresh, summery salsa.  For the salsa I combined a small diced red onion, cherry tomatoes, corn (cooked on cob, then stripped), one nectarine chopped into small pieces and mint and basil.  It was kick ass, colourful and smelled great too.  The only thing is that next time I'd look for a way to bind the salsa together a bit more - perhaps a little oil, or balsamic.  Or a mix of those two?  Enjoy, summer mixer numero dos!
