    Default Drumstick recipes/ideas

    We have baby #2 on the way and will be losing my income for about 9 months. I'm wanting to reduce my grocery bill. I already meal plan etc. but I was thinking if I used chicken drumsticks a few times a week that would help, as they're so cheap.

    I usually just do marinaded oven baked drumsticks with potato and veg, or I use them to put in soups. Does any one have any recipes or ideas for spicing up drummies so that it's a different meal each time I serve it? I hate serving the same thing twice in a week. Any other budget (but well-balanced) meal tips would be great too.

    Thanks!

    Apricot chicken with apricot nectar and French onion soup
    'KFC style chicken. There is a recipe on www.trtlmt.com.au. It's a thermo is recipe, but you just make thr spice mix in the thermie which I think could be done in a food processor. Then just bake in oven or shallow fry.

    Things I do with drumsticks are:

    Season with salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic and herbs and then just roast in the oven with roast veggies.

    Nigella's chicken and chorizo bake.

    Casseroles like chicken cacciatore and chicken, mushroom and bacon.

    As a pp said - you can use them in any casserole in place of breast or thigh fillets.

    Honey, soy, & garlic sticky drumsticks. That's pretty much all I do with them!

    Yep, I tend to bake them in the oven after tossing them, garlic, onion and potatoes in olive oil, salt and pepper then pour a can of diced tomatoes on top and some mixed herbs/fresh rosemary, cover baking dish with alfoil and bake at 180 degrees for an hour and half (depends on oven and leave alfoil off for the last 15 mins or so if desired).

    Apricot chicken, chicken curries, Bolognaise made with browned off chicken legs added to bog sauce and slowly simmered until meat comes away from the bone. Take chicken legs out and pull meat off when cool enough while sauce thickens on stove, re add chicken meat and you're ready to serve with pasta of your choice

    Sometimes I sprinkle chicken seasoning over and just bake in the oven and serve with mash and vege's, chicken stews etc in the slow cooker. As PP's have said, use in place of chicken thighs etc

    Default Drumstick recipes/ideas

    I don't use drumsticks but the little drumettes ( chicken lollypops!) ) kids love them and I make a crumb in the food processor with organic cornflakes, baby spinach and chia seeds and just crumb them and oven bake them for 45 mins , easy to make and packed with added vitamins from the spinach and chia seeds ( really good for parties and picnics)

    Stuffed drumsticks - http://www.foodtolove.com.au/recipes...potatoes-13908

    Super yum and my 6yr old and 4yr old loved it. No specialised ingredients required. You could easily get away with 2 or 3 slices of bread. I had quite a bit of stuffing left over.
