I've got a treat for you today...two recipes! This juicy chicken needed these biscuits...smoothered 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! Here it is folks!
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. I doubled this recipe because I used leg quarters, cut up , and the thighs are pretty big.
Dip drumsticks into butter; roll in flour mixture to coat.
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.

Gently stir in milk until just blended.
Turn dough out onto a floured surfacel knead one to 2 minutes. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut into biscuits. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheets; bake at 425 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes. Makes one dozen.
It's a down home, stick to your ribs, kinda cookin'!
The potatoes are cubed and boiled...stir in some butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and top them off with a seasoning....Italian, Parsley, Basil, which ever you chose!
