The chicken for this dish costs us $1.42. The lemons are free and the seasonings and vegetables cost next to nothing. Total cost for the meal would be under $2.00 for four people.
1 - 2 drumsticks per person
Plain flour to coat the drumsticks
Garlic - powdet, granules or fresh
Onion - dried flakes or fresh
Heat the oven to 190 degrees celcius.
Coat the drumsticks in plain flour. In a medium / large fry pan add the oil and cook the drumsticks until they are brown.
Transfer the drumsticks to an oven proof dish.
Cut one lemon and squeeze the juice over the drumsticks.
Season the drumsticks with all the seasonings.
Cut up the other lemon into thin slices and quarter each slice. Scatter over the drumsticks.
Cook in the oven uncovered for 40 minutes until cooked through.
Once you have served the drumsticks, add a little boiled water to the casserole dish and scrape up all the brown bits. This makes a lovely gravy / sauce to spoon over the chicken.
