We have been asked by the producers of the show Sacramento and Co. ABC channel 10 to demonstrate on TV a typical family dinner. Now that school is back, parents are preoccupied planning meals that are easy to make, nutritious for the kids and easy to clean up! It did not take me long to decide what to make. I was going to make exactly what I made for my family that same night. Tomato, Avocado and Red Onion Salad, a staple in our house during this season, Spinach Frittata, cooked fresh spinach is a very good kid friendly food, and chicken Drumsticks.
This Drumstick recipe is an adaptation of Susie Zumout’s fantastic, world famous “Drummets” recipe. If you want the original recipe, and I really suggest you check it out, go on her blog www.justforlicks.com.
2 pounds chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons garlic salt
1 tablespoon lemon pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a flat pan with aluminum foil. Place chicken in a single layer in pan. Sprinkle half the garlic salt and lemon pepper on one side of chicken. Bake for 25 minutes. Flip drumsticks and sprinkle the other side with the remaining seasoning and bake for another 20 minutes. Chicken taste better if crispy. Enjoy!
