Delicious Drumsticks and Flaky Biscuits

I've got a treat for you today...two recipes! This juicy chicken needed these biscuits...smothered in butter of course! (oh no...not me...I'm counting calories! But the hubby did! He likes a little biscuit with his butter!)
Are you ready for another home cooked meal? It's a simple meal...but oh sooo good! 

This recipe is on pg. 147 in Farmhouse Kitchen.
Delicious Drumsticks
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ t. paprika
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 ½ lbs. chicken drumsticks

Mix flour and seasonings in a shallow bowl; 
place melted butter in a separate shallow bowl. 

 Dip drumsticks into butter; roll in flour mixture to coat
I doubled this recipe because I used leg quarters, cut up , and the thighs are pretty big. 
 Arrange in an ungreased 8" X 8" baking pan. 
Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees until done, about 50 minutes. Makes 4 - 6 servings.

 While the chicken is baking in the oven, 
let's move on to the biscuits!
 You can find this recipe on pg 182 in Merry Christmas cookbook. 

Flaky Biscuits
 2 cups all-purpose flour
 3 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl; 
cut in shortening to resemble coarse crumbs.
 Gently stir in milk until just blended.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead one to 2 minutes. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut into biscuits. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheets; (I guess I forgot to take those pics!) bake at 425 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes. Makes one dozen. 

 It's a down home, stick to your ribs, kinda cookin'!
