Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary

This is the second in my series of recipes that utilize chicken drumsticks. Again, I'm using ingredients that are found in most homes. It helps to keep costs low. This dish was prepared for less than five dollars.

Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary

8 large chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
Grated zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary (2 teaspoons dried may be substituted)
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Juice of 1 lemon

1) Using a knife, make two diagonal cut in each chicken drumstick. Pat dry. Season legs with salt and pepper.
2) Place butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. When hot add drumsticks and cook until all sides are brown. Add garlic, lemon zest and rosemary.
3) Combine flour, chicken broth, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add to saute pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until drumsticks are tender, about 25 minutes. Transfer drumsticks to a serving platter. Season sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over drumsticks. Yield: 4 servings.

I love lemon and rosemary with anything! I'll have to try this with chicken legs -- not my favorite part of the chicken but one that DH enjoys.

Your chicken with Lemon and Rosemary is a winner with me because I am a real fan of rosemary. I just discovered your blog and like it and will return.

Wow this looks amazing. I'm putting it on my menu. I bet this sauce would be great on grilled halibut too.

Wow - this looks amazing! I love dark chicken meat the best and I'm glad to see something new (at least for me).

I suppose this could work for thighs as well? Just love the simplicity of the main flavors - and that it's just one pan!

Erica, it will work with thighs or breats as well. Timing will be a bit different though. Have a great day. Blessings...MAryr
