buttermilk oven roasted drumsticks

I don’t know why I have always replaced drumsticks in recipes…this recipe reminded me how GOOD they are. These 6 drumsticks rang up at $2.80! Yummy and cheap?

These are great to make in a pinch. Just around 35 minutes to cook in the oven and a few more under the broiler. They marinate all night so the meat is tender is full of flavor.

Perfect little meal here for a busy weeknight. The chicken is so juicy and a nice mix from the traditional chicken breast.

This recipe is from Julia’s Album. The directions are slightly different based on how I prepared them.

1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/6 bunch of fresh parsley, minced
1/2 teaspoon regular salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 chicken drumsticks

Mix all the ingredients (except the chicken) in a medium mixing bowl.
Using tongs place drumsticks in the mixture, making sure to coat all sides.
Seal bowl with plastic wrap and leave in fridge overnight (I did 18 hours).
Heat over to 400 degrees and place drumsticks alternating directions so they fit in a casserole dish.
Cook for 30-40 minutes, chicken juice should run clear and be at 165 degrees.
Broil for a few minutes to your liking.

easy + healthy egg bake

No one needs to feel the pressure of waking up with the bakers to get a scrumptious breakfast. This is easy to prep the day (or two) before and easy enough to throw together before you’ve had your morning coffee.
sausage cheese and veggie bake

I started with Skinnytaste’s recipe and spiced it up a bit with the help of Trader Joes – sundried tomato chicken sausage, sweet orange and red peppers, broccoli, cauliflour, leeks, and half an onion.

I chopped the veggies + cooked the sausage two days before cooking the bake because I knew I wouldn’t have time to do any closer to time. I stored it in a large tupperware container and simply sautéed it the morning, mixed the egg mixture and threw it in the oven. Easy peasy!
