Food Friday - One Pot Meal

One Pot Meal (Roasted Drumsticks and Potatoes)
Adapted by Let the Baking Begin

I was using up items in the freezer recently and had a bag of Drumsticks in the freezer that were begging to be cooked.  I went to Pinterest and searched for recipes.  This "One Pot Meal" caught my eye because, well, it was easy.  The recipe sounded really tasting and it did not disappoint.  Not to mention that my house smelled fantastic! 

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 6-8 large potatoes, cut in quarters or halves
  • 5-6 carrots, cut in 1-2 inch pieces
  • Kosher salt
  • Black ground pepper
  • 4 tsp ground pepper or 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional)
  • 3-4 Tbsp olive oil.

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with foil or even better, parchment paper.
  2. Thoroughly wash the potatoes & carrots with a scrubber and cut them in smaller pieces. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Rinse the chicken under running water & also pat dry with paper towel.
  4. Add chicken, potatoes and carrots to the lined baking dish and sprinkle with salt, ground pepper and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil. Toss everything to coat.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Check for doneness, if the potatoes and chicken drums are soft and easily pierced with the fork they are ready.
  6. If the chicken and potatoes have not browned up as much as you would like, turn the broil setting on the oven and broil for 5 minutes. Watch carefully, or they will burn.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve right away in the baking dish or transfer to a warm serving plate.
