This recipe is another example of a perfectly perfect easy and wallet-friendly family dinner. Whether you call them chicken drumsticks or chicken legs, you can be sure that it’s everybody’s favorite. These baked chicken drumsticks are juicy and delicious. I cook for the family of five, and we appreciate leftovers (if there are any), but you can easily adjust this recipe for the amount of people that you cook for.
- 3 lb. chicken drumsticks (about 1 large or 2 small drumsticks per person)
- 1 + 1/2 cups soy sauce
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- Italian seasoning
- sea salt
In a large bowl, over chicken, pour soy sauce and fill up with filtered water to the top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until ready to bake. I used to leave chicken drumsticks marinating overnight, and they turned out so good and flavorful, but in that case omit the salt, because they’ll be already salty enough from all that soy sauce.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat dry chicken drumsticks with paper towel and arrange in one layer in pan, turning to coat with avocado oil and Italian seasoning. Sprinkle some sea salt which will add extra crispiness to the chicken skin.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 45-60 minutes, turning once.
Now, I know its kinda late, but I’d like to share some of my Mother’s Day memories. I meant to do it last week, but due to being super busy in my garden, and everything else in between, I’ve got so backed up on many things. So, Mother’s Day… I woke up in the morning in some sort of shock, it was suspiciously quiet in the house. Normally, there would be arguments, cartoons and “what’s for breakfast?” going on every 2 minutes. Not a chance to ever sleep in on weekends. I got up, and what I saw, almost brought me to tears. The beds were made up, cereal for breakfast was served (which typically doesn’t happen at my house), the girls were peacefully playing board games, QUIETLY, so mommy can finally get some rest. Awe! So it’s possible after all!
I’ve got some amazing gifts as well. A super cute pillow that perfectly goes with my bedroom décor, love it! A gorgeous painting by my daughter, that makes me only wish I had enough walls to display their beautiful art.
We had a nice lunch at the local restaurant, and while waiting for our food, my daughters were creating gifts, once again, with crayons. I felt extremely special!
Traditional Mother’s Day Tea Party at my youngest daughter’s school made me realize that despite of all the rainy days of motherhood, I’m so happy to be a mom to my sweet girls.
This is a beautiful view from Larrabee Park in Bellingham, where we went to hang out after lunch.
And of course, a picture together with my sweethearts. Wow, they’re getting so big!
