White wine and sweet paprika are the tricks that turn this recipe into an enticing dish, especially if marinate the chicken overnight. The longer they marinate the better they taste. But worry not if, in rush, chicken drumsticks must marinate at least 30 minutes before baking.

For crispy legs, baking at a high temperature for 20 minutes before flipping is necessary.    At this time broccoli need to be included in the baking tray and cook them for an additional 10 minutes on the other side. Flipping them once is enough and just ensures that they are cooked through both sides.

White bread is contraband, but can still enjoy the ultimate portable food if the right substitute is found. Thankfully, there are plenty of options:

  • Cauliflower
  • Zucchini
  • Lettuce (for wraps)

All needed is some lettuce, beef (preferably grass fed), tomato and bacon. Grill a few burgers over the weekend, peel off some big leaf of lettuce and cut up some tomatoes. Wrap the burger in the lettuce before work. Eat it cold or hot! 

 

In general, any lean meat, bacon or veggie filling is ideal for a lettuce wrap or sandwich.
