    Chicken legs were on special at my supermarket so I bought several packs, ending up with 9 drumsticks and 9 thighs. I increased this recipe to 9 servings and the amount of breadcrumb mix was just right. These cooked up nicely, the crumb mix going nice and crispy and very tasty! I had some cold the next day for lunch and froze the remainder. Cold was good too. Defrosted in the microwave a couple of weeks later for 18 minutes on my defrost setting. It defrosted well but then I cooked it on high for a couple of minutes and ruined it. The crumb coating went all soggy and the chicken took on that cooked-in-the-microwave taste. I think I should have put them in the oven to reheat. I think it would be good cold as well. I'm going to take them out of the freezer the night before and put in my lunchbox the next time. A great once a month cooking (OAMC) project and handy to have in the freezer. Made for the OAMC freezer tag game.


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
