Sometimes you just need everything to be on one sheet pan. It's orderly. Efficient. There's fewer dishes. Our lives get so busy and there are times when throwing everything on a sheet pan solves a lot of problems. And these marinated sheet pan drumsticks are to.die.for. I'm serious. This is a great option for a weeknight dinner when you're trying to save time and money.
Sheet Pan Drumsticks to the rescue!
One of the best parts about this recipe is flavoring the drumsticks. I really love marinating chicken in yogurt, and it takes a lot less yogurt than you think. This very easy step can be done the day before. Throw together the marinade and let the chicken marinate overnight in the fridge. The flavor and tenderness is off the hook!
Here's something else. I've found that even when prices are creeping up at the grocery store, we can still get drumsticks at a fairly cheap price. I'm noticing that with ground pork and pork chops too. Also, I love drumsticks! If you're a regular reader of my website - you are, right? Someone? Out there? Anyone, anyone.... Bueller? Right, so all my regular readers know I prefer dark meat chicken. I love my thighs and my drumsticks. There's a lot you can do with both!
You're only a few steps away from an Awesome sheet pan dinner
This dinner is easy to make and has tons of flavor. I love the combination of cilantro and mint. Fresh herbs can totally transform food and I highly recommend you give the cilantro/mint combo a try. And the limes!! There are so many times when a little spritz of lime, lemon or orange will add a layer of flavor you didn't even know you needed. This is one of those times. A little squeeze of that lime puts the drumsticks over the top.
