Trim drumsticks of visible fat. Make several deep slashes in the fleshy end of each drumstick. Place in a non-metallic bowl. In a separate small bowl mix marinade ingredients together. Coat drumsticks. Cover and marinate for at least 1 hour in the fridge.

Place marinated drumsticks on a non-stick baking tray with 2 tablespoons of water and pop into a pre-heated oven at 190°C to cook for 30-40 minutes until chicken is cooked. (Alternatively, you could cook these on a BBQ.)

While the chicken is cooking, rinse quinoa under running water. Put quinoa and stock in a pot, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. When cooked and slightly cooled, mix with the spring onions, pepperdews, walnuts, and mint.

In a separate bowl, mix tomato, cucumber, seeds and balsamic vinegar together and set aside.

When the chicken is cooked through, serve with quinoa salad and salsa. Garnish with lemon and mint.
