Mustard and Dill Drumsticks, Sweet Potato Fries, Spring Salad

Today was a great day! Now, time to cook dinner. I decided to make chicken tonight, and while I was walking through Whole Foods I saw jars of mustard dill sauces and it gave me an idea of what to make. Now I know what some of you are thinking, that mustard dill sauce is used for fish, mainly salmon. Well it is slim pickens for sauces for people with food allergies, so I am trying it out.

Chicken and sauce
5 Drumsticks *
1 tsp salt
1 heaping tsp mustard powder
1 1/2 tsp dill
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (if you want to add some spice)
1/2 tsp ginger
4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup water

Mix salt, mustard, dill, turmeric, cayenne pepper, ginger, olive oil and water in a bowl. Spray baking pan with Bakers and Chefs canola oil cooking spray and place chicken in pans. Pour sauce over the chicken and spread evenly around the pan. Bake at 375 for 50-60 min.

* Whole Foods chicken claims no antibiotics "ever", no added hormones, vegetarian diet, barn roaming, complete traceability to farms, and no added solutions or injections.

Sweet Potato Fries
3 Medium Sweet Potatoes

Slice sweet potatoes, add 1 tbsp Olive oil to saucepan, cover, and heat fries over low-medium heat, about 7-10 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste.

Spring Salad
Green Leaf Lettuce
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
Gourmet tomatoes
1/2 onion, chopped

Chop red and green peppers, and onion. Place in bowl with spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, and dress with olive oil.
