sticky garlic chicky (+ zucc balls)

This was a really tasty meal I threw together yesterday afternoon, so there was something ready for my Mum, who was babysitting for us while we went for an evening wakeboarding session at Lake Arapuni (not a bad exchange, eh?).  It was quick and, best of all, can be prepared in advance as is good hot or cold.  Eat with a salad and some new potatoes, or steamed vege and chips.  Or as part of a tasty picnic lunch.  Versatile, me likey.   

Sticky garlic chicken: 

6 chicken drumsticks (or 2 breasts, or equivalent wings)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tbsp brown sugar (less if you prefer)
dash sesame oil
salt and pepper
  1. Sauté garlic in a little butter.  Stir in brown sugar, oil and salt/pepper.
  2. Place chicken in dish for baking and top with garlic mixture.  
  3. Bake for about 20 minutes in 200 degree celcius oven.  
Zucchini balls: 

2 zucchini, grated 
1 egg
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp grated parmesan 
handful chopped fresh herbs
salt and pepper
bread crumbs (optional)
  1. Mix everything together, except bread crumbs.  
  2. Place golfball-sized balls on baking tray (lined with baking paper)
  3. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, if using.  
  4. Bake at 200 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.  
  5. Serve with sweet chili, or aioli.
