Handsome Prince Easy Chicken Drumsticks… & You’ll Live Happily Ever After!

“Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it’s tuna, but it says ‘Chicken of the Sea.’ “

Jessica Simpson

Chicken…it’s what’s for dinner!


My Handsome Prince never has been, nor do I believe he cares to ever be known for his cooking. Sure, in his bachelor life, I’ve been witness to some out of this world meals whipped up by a man bearing a striking resemblance to my Prince. Certainly, he can feed himself when left to his own devices… usually take out. 😉 I enjoy cooking and he’s a happy taster so he gratefully stepped out of the kitchen when I came on scene. He’s more of a supervisor and cheerleader of my kitchen activities.

His mother is a very accomplished cook. Growing up he watched how she brought her own flair to dishes he enjoyed. I’ll often bounce a recipe or spice question past him and am very appreciative that he’s been a lifelong observer in the kitchen. He doesn’t like to be in there but he’s got a lot of really easy recipes stored up in that handsome noggin, that have become a staple of the quick and easy meal around here. Thanks be to a Mother in Law that is an amazing cook, this dish he picked up from watching her work her magic.

Ready for it? How about now?

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, please. Do it now because this takes no time to put together!

3 ingredients for a quick and simple chicken dish


All you need is an oven, a foil lined cookie sheet, some  washed & dried chicken legs, Lowry’s Seasoned Salt, Lowry’s Garlic Salt & Pepper (optional).

Seriously, this takes you about 2 minutes to prep before you pop it in the oven for 45 minutes!

Line your cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. The Handsome Prince says foil but eh, tomato tomato.

Sprinkle your cookie sheet with a little bit of Seasoned Salt, Garlic Salt (& pepper if you choose).

Lawery’s Seasoned Salt & Garlic Salt


What’s with the Lawry’s? Do I HAVE to get Lawry’s?http://www.lawrys.com/product-landing.aspx

When I find a brand that I feel I can trust to be the same quality product I expect to find every time I use it… I stick by it! I’ve tried other brands, store brands but I ALWAYS come back to Lawry’s for my Seasoned Salt and Garlic Salt. I use these in so many recipes, these jars become like an old friends waiting to hop out of my cupboard and sprinkle my meals with love. When you find something you like and works for you, share so we can all benefit! These are a must for my kitchen.

Wash your drumsticks and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Line up your legs on your foil lined cookie sheet.

Sprinkle your seasoned salt, garlic salt (& pepper) generously over your chicken. This is where you are welcome to put your own spin on your chicken. If you have a favorite spice that you love the flavor of or would rather brush on a favorite marinade… Do it to it and do it now! I like to brush some with BBQ sauce occasionally for a little difference or to change the flavor of the whole meal.

Put your cookie sheet of chicken into your oven for about 45 minutes.

Remove from oven when it’s a nice golden brown color. It’s got a nice crisp to it while still keeping so moist and tender.

 Since this chicken is such a prep it and forget it, simple recipe. I paired it with a couple quick and easy sides that we usually keep on hand in our pantry. I serve a meal like this when we’ve been running around, I’ve got so many things going that I need dinner to just cook it’s self OR just because it’s cheap, easy, tasty and better for you than take out.


That’s it! 3 ingredients, 2 minutes to prep and 45 to cook!

Dinner cooks while you take care of other things and in no time you have a home cooked meal that tastes like you slaved away in your kitchen. HELLO! No brainer, super easy and oh so good! Gather your family for a meal that is easy on the wallet and fills your home with memories of home cooked family meals. Chicken just smells so good. Drumsticks, Chicken Legs… what ever you like to call them, they are guaranteed to please kids, adults and tempt little Bengal kittens too!

2 Thumbs up!!! Luc approves of this message! I just LOVE this little freckled nose!

 This week kicks off “Birthday Season” in our house! We have a Birthday every month and twice in July between Luc’s Birthday this week and me at the end of July. It’s always a good reason to have a party around here!

Wishing you leftover chicken to eat in your salads,

Meg xoxo

    If I were to marinate the mix of chicken and spices, how long do you think I should do at minimum? Didn’t you use any oil? Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

      I never marinate these but most marinades need at lease an hour to sit on chicken to have any impact. I use no oil. Just sprinkle the chicken legs with seasoned salt, garlic salt and a dusting of pepper and they are ready to pop right into the oven to cook from there. That’s the beauty of these drumsticks, they take 5 minutes to put together and then into the oven. 🙂

        Cheers Meg for the tips! Keep sharing simple recipes 😉

    Do you know how much sodium is in that stuff?! Yikes!

    • Miss Lyss on July 20, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    @tracy I have had the utmost pleasure of devouring these delicious wings… Sodium filled or not. This is a quick, simple, and yummy way to keep your man smiling. If it takes a little sodium to keep a man happy then so be it! If you want a health conscious wing recipe I’m sure there are many out there. No need to criticize a good thing! Go sodium!!

    do you remove the skin?

      • Meg on February 19, 2014 at 4:01 pm

      No. I leave the skin on. When we eat it some people like to take it off and others love it so that way everyone is happy and the meat stays moist.
