    Good ideas on how to prepare chicken drums/thighs?

    Shop Now
    I'm rather new to cooking when it comes to meats, especially in a "Primal" manner. (At home, I know of many chicken dishes we make, but all the ones I remember right now include grain of some sort.) My current kitchen supply is somewhat lacking too (yay poor college student). Any ideas?

    For reference, I have onion, bell pepper, garlic, carrots, broccoli, and tomato available for use, as well as thyme and a variety of other spices. As for dishes, I'm unsure whether there is a deep-enough dish to use for oven baking. I'd have to check...

    I cut up the chicken, throw some chilli powder, onion, jalapeno peppers and cook that all in some bacon grease. I then throw it on a plate with some lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese, and salsa or hot sauce. Sort of a Mexican Salad...

    We grill our chickens, so you have access to a grill?

    I normally smoke or grill them but in a pinch use a baking dish and Cajun seasoning some butter and bake 'em for 45 min or so on 350.

    coat them in olive oil, fresh garlic, juice and zest of one lemon, and fresh rosemary. Allow to marinate for about an hour, grill on a low flame to avoid blackening from the flare ups. Delicious, and full of flavor

    I think this recipe came from MDA

    I stuff the chicken with cut up apples and smear the outside in bacon fat. Bake at 420 for 45-1hr.

    I have been on a chicken drumstick binge. In the switch to pastured organic chicken, they are the cheapest cut. Recently, I've tried, bacon wrapped chicken grilled, oven fried chicken with an almond flour, dry rub in the crockpot or oven, and simmered in a no sugar barbecue sauce. The recipes are on my blog: http://amoderngal.com/2010/07/19/simmered-drumsticks/

    Chicken with 40 cloves. Sear the chicken pieces(skin on), put into a baking dish with the fat of your choice filling the dish halfway up the chicken parts. Add 20- 100 cloves of peeled garlic, Bake at 400*F until chicken is done (approx 1.5 hrs.)

    Well, I went searching and found this page. I decided to roll with it because I have very little in the way of other stuff to use at the moment (for instance, no lemons/lemon juice). In addition to the salt and pepper mixture, I added some thyme and shredded coconut. I'm eating it right now and holy crap is it delicious.
