Lemon Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet Potatoes

Lemon Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet Potatoes

Looking for an easy quick dinner to make thats naturally Gluten Free? Try out my Lemon Chicken Drum Sticks with Sweet Potatoes.
The Chicken is very moist and super tasty.

For more recipes and tidbits please join me on my
Facebook Gluten Free Page:

This recipe is enough for 2-3 people

6 Drum Sticks or Thighs: Wash, remove any excess skin and dry with a paper towel

In a Ziplock bag add and give it a good mix:
4 Tbl. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbl. Balsamic Vinegar
Spices to taste:
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Minced Garlic
Onion Powder
Tuscan Spicy Garlic (A spice blend of Garlic, Sea Salt and Chili) or any other spice of your choice
Juice of One Lemon
Remove the Seeds from the Lemon and cut into 8 wedges and add to the bag
After the blend has been mixed add the Chicken Drum Sticks give it a good mix so that all the chicken has been coated.
Marinate in the Refrigerator for 2 Hours. After an hour turn the bag over.

Preheat the Oven to 450*

Spray a glass 9X13 pan with Cooking Spray
Pour the entire Ziplock bag contents into the glass pan including the lemon wedges

Peel and cut into chunks 1-2 Sweet Potatoes
Peel and cut into chunks 3-5 Carrots
1 medium Onion cut into small wedges
(You can use White or Red Potatoes in place of the Sweet Potatoes. You could use Parsnips in place of the Carrots,, this is a recipe you can have fun using different vegetables)

Place the vegetables all around the Chicken and Lemon mixture. Use your hands to help coat all the vegetables in the mixture. You many need to drizzle just a little bit more Extra Virgin Olive Oil across the Vegetables. Sprinkle with Fresh or Dried Parsley. Sprinkle on a little more Salt and Pepper.

Bake for 1 Hour or until the Chicken reaches 165* and the Vegetables are tender.

I like to serve Frozen Green Peas with this dinner.
