Chicken Drumsticks Recipe

 

I love chicken; the proof is the collection of chicken recipes in this blog. If you enjoyed my Chicken Leg Quarter Recipe or the Garlic-Herb Roasted Chicken Recipe, you’re going to love this Sheet Pan Chicken Drumsticks and Vegetables.

To make this recipe, I used skin-on chicken drumsticks, which help keep the meat moist during cooking. Although some people prefer to remove it, I encourage you to keep it at least until the chicken is cooked. Then you can remove it if you are not a fan.

What I love about drumsticks:

  • Chicken drumsticks tend to be one of the more affordable cuts of chicken.
  • Drumsticks are versatile and can be prepared using various cooking methods such as baking, grilling, frying, or braising.
  • They are known for their juicy meat and rich flavor.

Vegetables I use:

I added some of my favorite vegetables. 

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Baby carrots
  • Red and green bell peppers
  • Grape tomatoes

Seasonings:

  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Smoked paprika
  • Onion powder
  • Salt & black pepper

 

Preparation:

To keep things simple, Add the chicken drumsticks to a large, gallon-sized food storage bag, add oil, which will hold all the seasonings to the chicken, and help get that golden crisp skin that is so delicious. Seal the bag, and roll the drumsticks around for a minute to distribute the oil evenly on all the chicken. Then, open the bag, pour in the seasonings, close the bag, and shake for a few minutes.

Massage the chicken to get that seasoning well distributed. Set aside and preheat your oven to 425°F.

Chop the vegetables and spread them out on a large sheet pan. Then, drizzle with oil and season with some of the same spices. Arrange the chicken drumsticks and place the sheet pan in the oven. If you don’t have a rimmed sheet pan, a roasting dish also works well for this recipe.

Bake for 40-50 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through (internal temperature 165 degrees F). You may need to move some of the veggies around to keep the ones on the edges from getting too crispy. Remove from the oven and serve.
