  • Baking Dish/Pan (13" x 9")


  • 2 lbs drumsticks about 8
  • 1 ½ lbs yukon gold potatoes with skin cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 cup chicken broth or stock unsalted or low-sodium
  • 4 tbsp (divided) olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 large carrots peel and cut into chunks
  • 1 sweet onion medium size chopped

Cornstarch Mix

  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp cold water


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (232°C).
  • Clean and pat the drumsticks dry with a paper towel. Place them a bowl. Add oil (2 tbsp), salt, pepper, garlic, thyme and rub the seasoning on the drumsticks. Place the cut potatoes, carrots, onions into a 13" x 9" baking pan/dish. Add 2 tbsp oil, season with salt & pepper. Mix everything together.
  • Place the seasoned drumsticks on top of the vegetables. Pour the unsalted chicken stock in the baking pan/dish (slowly pour the broth near the edges of the dish and not over the chicken).
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the pan/dish from the oven and flip the drumsticks. Return the dish into the oven again and bake for another 35 minutes. Remove the pan/dish from the oven. Transfer the drumsticks to a plate (cover with foil) and set aside.
  • In a small bowl: combine cornstarch and cold water, stir until the cornstarch has dissolved. Pour the mix in the pan/dish. Gently mix by swirling the vegetables around to evenly distribute the conrstarch mix (the gravy will thicken within several minutes).

Pour the gravy over drumsticks and vegetables. Serve with dinner rolls and enjoy!
