Roasted Dried Herb Drumsticks Recipe

If you aren’t planning your meals ahead, or even if you are – but you ran out of some special ingredient and abandoned the project, chicken drumsticks can always serve as an impromptu and satisfying dish at the last minute.

Breaded drumsticks may come first to mind when you think about what you ate in the past, in those pre-Paleo days when “everything goes” was the norm – but not anymore. The new normal is roasted, grilled, or stewed meat. And you know what? Life is much tastier like this, it can be said to be anti-inflammatory too.

While chicken drumsticks may appear unchallenging to the experienced cook, they really are a good thing to have in your stock of easy-to-cook and budget-friendly dishes that everyone likes to gobble up.

They are perfect for parties, friendly get-togethers, and game nights, and they will work any night of the week. As they are baking in the oven, you have all the time you need to create a scrumptious Paleo dessert or a salad of delectable proportions.

Whatever you do, do not pass on the chance to smother these perfectly roasted drumsticks with a hearty spinach and artichoke dip, which just happens to serve six.

Don’t cut this recipe in half, though, or there will be consequences to pay – and you won’t save any time by reducing the ingredients. After all, this creamy green dip is the very thing that makes the meal remarkable, luscious, and finger-licking amazing.
