Simple Oven Roasted Chicken Drumsticks made with butter, garlic, herbs, and more. This simple dish will be on the table in 40 minutes or less!
You all know how I feel about simple, family-friendly dinners that aren’t fussy. I LOVE them. I mean, I have five kids and a life. Sure I love to cook but that doesn’t mean that I don’t ever struggle getting dinner on the table for my people. One thing we all love is a great roasted chicken recipe and this particular recipe is a keeper; I can’t wait for you to try it, too.
This roasted chicken recipe is super simple. It has things like garlic, rosemary, and lemon in it, but what’s great about it is that none of those are the star of the show. They all work together to produce a really flavorful chicken without any one ingredient really standing out too much. This is one of those basic chicken recipes that you are going to come back to again and again because it’s simple, it turns out every time, your kids will love it, and it’s a great main dish to serve with your favorite sides. It kind of goes with anything and everything (I made notes on side dishes I’d serve this with in the Tips and Tricks section).
I feel like the little trick to this recipe is that you add your garlic and lemons to the pan with the chicken and then add some broth to the pan. The chicken and all of the “aromatics” mingle more because they are in a liquid and the chicken stays more moist. The liquid cooks off and you are left with the most delicious chicken in the end. This simple oven roasted chicken is going to be a stable in your kitchen.
