Easy Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, then line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with non-stick spray. Wash Chicken legs and put them on the prepared baking sheet.
Sprinkle generously with your favorite seasonings, I used Chicken Seasoning salt, Season All, Soul Food Seasoning, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder. I sprinkle on one side bake about 45 mintutes and then take them out and turn them sprinkle with seasonings on the other side and bake them for about another 45 minutes. Don't be afraid to cook these for about an hour and a half total time...because I have found that they are perfect then...not rubbery at all, like baked chicken can often tend to be... if it isn't cooked long enough.

After you take them out of the oven be sure to let them stand for about 10-15 minutes...they are just better if you do this...  By allowing the meat to stand a little while before serving allows the juices, (which have been driven to the center of the meat while cooking) to redistribute and be reabsorbed. The meat will be more juicy, tender, a better texture (not rubbery).  

Serve with your favorite side dishes and...
 Enjoy this carefree and "easy" as it gets dish!


Easy Baked Apples

This is a perfect recipe for fall

All you will need is some apples, honey, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon and butter or margarine....

Lightly grease a casserole dish, wash and core the center of  the apples, place them in casserole dish, sprinkle the inside of each apple with a generous amount of honey, then pack in some brown sugar and sprinkle the tops with cinnamon and  then cut slices of butter and put them on the tops.  Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 30-40  minutes depending on the size of the apples you are using. This makes a nice presentation for  a fall desert and if you'd like to, you can eat these with shortbread cookies or they are delicious all by themselves.   

 I like to cut them into quarters, (as I did in the photo below)....

 I then take the sauce that's in the dish and I spoon it over the apples and then I bake them an additional 5-10 minutes until they reach desired tenderness, the sauce thickens over the apples and this makes them extra yummy.
