Fried chicken drumsticks

Pat the chicken dry. Beat the egg with a fork. Combine breadcrumbs with the spices. First dip the chicken in egg, then in the breadcrumbs. Place the chicken in a greased, ovenproof baking dish (approx. 15 x 25 cm) and roast in the middle of the oven until completely cooked for approx. 50 min at 200°C (conventional oven).

Pasta salad

Cook the pasta in salted water in a large pot. Cook for approx. 8 minutes uncovered, then add the beans and continue to cook uncovered for approx. 3 min. Drain in a colander and leave to steam off. Combine the pasta and beans with the rest of the ingredients. Arrange in a serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley. Serve the pasta salad with chicken and bread.
