Tight Budget Healthy Chicken

Recipe by jennifer in new jer

Inexpensive and very tasty. Makes a very nice, almost carmelized sauce on its own. If I cant afford organic chicken then I go to Wegmans and they have a "Food You Feel Good About" line of foods , and the meats have no hormones, antibiotics, preservatives, etc... I get a pack of 8 chicken drumsticks for 2 dollars or less to make this dish. Most of the ingredients are things usually found around the house. I usually use more garlic for my 3 yr old who likes extra on everything. Hope it works for you.

Excellent chicken dish ~ we really enjoyed this. I did make it with one in chicken breasts as they were on sale this week and I used the Vidalia onion as I couldn't find cipollini's. A nice meal on a cold winter night. Thanks for posting this jennifer. Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
