I usually take care of the food, groceries, and cooking in our house. This day I had worked a ton, and my brain was a bit fried to think about what we would eat. I didn’t want to eat out, we had drumsticks, but I had no idea. I started cleaning up to see if something would come to mind. I text Brian…
Me: What do you want for dinner that involves chicken? I want hamburgers.
Brian: LOL!!! Let’s have hamburgers.
Me: We don’t have meat, or buns. We have chicken. LOL.
Brian: Ok, lets have chicken.
So chicken…I let the drumsticks marinade in the black bean garlic sauce with buttermilk while I finished cleaning up the kitchen. I popped them in the oven an hour later. We both were super happy with the result. So over the next couple of weeks I worked on the recipe to perfect it and here it is!
