Pan grilled Chicken Drumsticks


It is a well known fact that we both are foodies. We are Bengali, so there is no escape from food and 'adda' (gossip). Every season, every puja and every occasion is incomplete without proper food to us. We love to do grocery shopping everyday in India. No guest can leave our house without atleast a sweet and a glass of water. So, I want to dedicate this post to them who really loves to eat and finds excuse to make special dishes even there is no occasion ! Everyone loves 'grilled chicken' and this one has done on skillet or pan so that everybody can cook even if you don't have any oven. The recipe is very simple but the taste is unbeatably delicious.
