While the chicken’s cooking, grab a bag of lettuce, and top it with one of these delicious DeLallo SaladSavors® that make life so easy. These are the BEST, and come in 6 varieties with top quality ingredients. All you have to do is add some oil and vinegar, and you have an amazing salad in 5 minutes. My favorite is the Zesty which has marinated artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and Asiago cheese pictured below.

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken drumsticks, skin removed*
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 lime, squeezed, and lime zest
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Rinse the chicken and remove the skin and all fat. Pat dry; place in a large bowl and season with salt.
  • In a small bowl combine Dijon, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, garlic and pepper. Mix well. Pour over chicken, tossing well to coat.
  • Spray a large baking pan with a little Pam to prevent sticking since all the fat and skin was removed from chicken.
  • Place chicken to fit in a single layer. Top the chicken with dried parsley.
  • Bake until cooked through, about 35 minutes. Finish the chicken under the broiler until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
