Last month,I was trying to do a beautiful
chicken leg recipe that I devised!
This was the last foto taken before
my camera kicked the bucket.
Here it is ready for the oven,
before I decided to pre-cook the chicken legs..
This turned out to be a beautiful presentation
and a delicious meal.
Need I say more???
