Venetia's Broiled Tzatziki Chicken
12 skinless chicken drumsticks
1 cup Tzatziki sauce (recipe below)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
PAM or olive oil spray
Tzatziki sauce (for best result let sit overnight)

1/2 cucumber grated
3 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (optional)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
In a bowl add all the ingredients and mix until everything is blended.
Taste for the salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour
to let the flavors set. Best if left in refrigerator overnight.
Spray your pan with olive oil. Remove the skin from your drumsticks
and place in the pan and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
Using a spoon to place enough tzatziki to cover the meat and top with parmesan cheese.
Broil on high for 15 min then rotate the chicken putting more tzatziki and parmensan
each time. Continue to rotate the chicken every 10 min until juices run clear (approximately 45 min total).
Although Moon did not mention it, we are positive that these drumsticks would be delicious left over. With school starting back up and lunchbox contents becoming a daily dilemma, we offer this chicken up as a healthy, yummy alternative to sandwiches. We'll plan to double this version so as to have extras for tomorrow's lunch. Enjoy!
