Rosemary Garlic Drumsticks

Faith Keith - Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Ingredients

  • This recipe coats 10 chicken drumsticks:
  • 1-2 eggs (I only needed 1, but depending on how large your eggs are you may need 2. This is only to coat the drumsticks)
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dehydrated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp dehydrated onion
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp lemon peel
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (for color)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Set oven to 350°F
  2. Whisk the egg(s) in a wide mouth bowl (so you can dip the drumsticks easily)
  3. Mix all remaining ingredients in another wide mouth bowl or plate (so you can roll the drumsticks easily)
  4. Coat drumsticks in egg, then roll in spices (I’m not gonna lie…I totally used my fingers to smudge some around to ensure it was well seasoned)
  5. In a skillet on medium heat, add oil and lightly brown the drumsticks (this is only for aesthetics, so don’t go crazy with trying to cook or fry them here)
  6. Place the drumsticks on a foil-lined baking sheet (for easy clean up)
  7. lightly spray with oil or 0 calorie butter to keep the drums moist
  8. Bake for 25 minutes on one side then flip and bake for a final 15 minutes, or until cooked through (juices will run clear)

Slow-Cooker Brisket Sandwiches

Slow cooker Brisket sandwich - Faith KeithI prepped this the night before and let the meat marinate overnight.  Then first thing in the morning I turned the slow-cooker on.  Ready just in time for lunch!

The brisket falls apart in your mouth! The picture shown above doesn’t have sauce drizzled across it, but dipping or drizzling the sauce would add pow to this already juicy meat.

Coleslaw or sauerkraut or even simple lettuce/tomato/mayo/mustard would be delicious with these babies.

My brother tried this over Jasmine rice, how very Filipino of him 🙂
