Crispy Drumsticks

My kids love to gnaw meat off of a bone! And honestly, what’s not to love about it? I think the best part to them is the go ahead to eat with their fingers.

Here’s a simple and tasty recipe that’s fun and nourishing for the whole family.


Note: I don’t often use olive oil to cook with due to its fragility. However, using a good quality olive oil is important to me when I occasionally do. My favorite is Kasandrinos!
