Skinless Chicken Drumsticks

 

Hello!  The other day I told you I would share my simple, easy and cheap (not to mention weightwatcher friendly) chicken recipe.

You can do this with thighs or drumsticks.  I always wait until they go on sale for .88 cents a pound. 

ALWAYS!

It usually comes in a big family pack which I divide in half and freeze part of it.

The hardest part about this is getting the skin off.  Blech!  So what I have figured out is to use paper towels to help you grab and pull.  It is so gross to touch it, but with a stack of paper towels to use, it is really easy and much cleaner.

Once the skin is off (you will freak when you see the pile of fat you have pulled off and would have eaten), just line the legs up on a Pam sprayed, lined cookie sheet.

Then season with whatever you have.  I happen to have this Adobo, and my kid loves it, so this is what we will use until its gone.  You can add garlic, salt & pepper, whatever.

Sprinkle both sides then put in the oven for about 45 minutes.  Check doneness with a thermometer.  I cook at 375.

And when it comes out, its really good!

We love it and its just pure protein.  I love the taste of dark meat these days.  I promise you will not miss the fat.

My kid loves this too. 

I add it to my lunch for extra protein.

Hope you are off to a good start to your work week.

I got off work early and thought about getting my nails done for real.  Then I came to my senses and came home and posted this instead.

Old habits die hard!  But I am getting there!  Slow but sure!

  1. I’m not a fan of drumsticks, but I love thighs, and that’s pretty close to how we cook them. Adobo, oregano and 1-3 bullion cubes melted in butter. Yum! You can do without the butter, and skip the cube if you must, but oregano does give it a bit of extra taste. Dont forget garlic!

  2. I’ve been looking for some different ways to cook chicken, I’ll have to give this one a try once my kitchen is put back together.

    Good catch on the nails! It sometimes seems like it takes forever to change certain habits but you’ll get there. Just don’t end up like how I used to be, living like a hermit afraid to spend any extra money.
