Baked Chicken Drumsticks
I published my first blog post in July of 2011. 3-4 recipes a week x 11 years = a LOT of blog posts! One would think that I've said absolutely everything there is to say about chicken in that amount of time. 😂 Turns out - I've got more chicken recipes to share and more stories to tell you about chicken -- and lots more trivial information to share about my life.😅 When you love food as much as I do - you've got a lot to say about the food that you eat. 🤷🏻♀️ I guess I was made to be a food blogger.
I've posted a lot of chicken recipes over the years. Mainly because I eat like a pesce-pollotarian. No worries if you're unfamiliar with that term. I just learned it myself -- and I'm one of them. 😅 Pesca-pollotarian is the technical name for vegetarians, like me, who eat chicken and fish but avoid red meat and pork.
If you want to avoid dinner invitations from friends, tell them that you cook for a living and then inform your host that you're also a pesca-pollotarian. 😅 Only your true friends are willing to overlook all of that and take on the task of preparing food for you despite of it. Thankfully, I've been blessed with great friends who have accepted my weird eating habits and willingly cook for me anyway.
Vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free - all words that ignite pangs of stress and anxiety in the heart of even the most seasoned host and hostess. Throw in an obscure term like pesca-pollatarian and you're almost guaranteed to be served a single, uncooked carrot for dinner. 🥕😂
Even as a person who has a whole lot of experience in food preparation - I've done my share of google searches while menu planning for guests with special dietary needs. Google is a really good resource but, if you need extra help - reach out to me. I've got lot's of great recipes for all kinds different dietary needs. Especially great chicken recipes like Baked Chicken Drumsticks that are perfect for Tuesday night dinners or to serve at a formal dinner party. They're pesca- pollotarian, dairy and gluten free. You're welcome.

This is one of those cases where the final product didn't photograph nearly as well as I wanted it to. The pictures just don't do it justice. You'll just have to take my word for it that my Baked Chicken Drumsticks were super flavorful and tender or make them and see for yourself. 😉
