Recipe: bacon wrapped chicken drumsticks

These are always a winner at barbecues. It helps that they can be prepared in advance, leaving less to worry about when it's barbecue time. Whilst these are bacon wrapped, you can also try pancetta instead, which I find tends to be easier to work with. Oh – and bacon really isn't all that bad providing what you buy is good quality – so there's no reason not to enjoy.
