Saucy Drumsticks & Thighs

READY IN: 3hrs 13mins
Recipe by Chef 313014

This is very good! I used crushed tomatoes when I first made this, as I didn't have diced at the time. It still turned out great! From Southern Living's Our Best Easy Weeknight Favorites.

We REALLY enjoyed this saucy drumstick recipe - thanks so much for posting it! I used about 10 or 12 drumsticks (no thighs) and a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (with no tomato paste), and we had enough sauce. Thanks again for posting, Chef #313014!
