spice rubbed drumsticks

It’s great to see you here today!

It’s amazing how one week can seem to fly while others languish on and just can’t seem to get themselves across the finish line.  Last week was one of those weeks. It moved in slow motion.

There were errands that didn’t want to come off the to do list.  There was an unexpected trip to the pediatrician and days home from school.  And, so many practices and sports commitments that I actually forgot to take the youngest to one of his.

Please don’t tell him.

basketballSpeaking of the littlest.  Here is is in this very grainy photo I took over the weekend.  I’ll blame the lighting and not my camera skills.  He sure does try hard and as you can probably make out he’s the shortest on his team.  Actually, he’s the smallest on the court for every single game, either team.  It doesn’t seem to bother him though.

spice rubbed drumsticks Well, let’s get back to the spice rubbed drumsticks in all of their glory.  This is a five ingredient recipe.  No really, it is.

You can add in a few sprigs of fresh thyme to garnish your plate, but you really don’t have to.

The recipe is below for the spice mixture, but you’ll need to visit my friend, Cecile over at My Yellow Farmhouse for the Armenian Rice recipe.  Please do, it was really delicious and a nice accompaniment to the chicken.  You’ll love the collection of recipes that she shares regularly.

Lastly, I’ve added all of the Mondays on Main St. recipes right here on their very own page.  I’m feeling very organized and proud of myself for gathering them onto one easy to find location of my little blog.

Go take a peek there if you have time.

Spice Rubbed Drumsticks


1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp garlic powder

1 3/4 lb chicken drumsticks, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels

fresh thyme for garnish, optional


Preheat oven to 425°.

Mix the spices in a small bowl using a small whisk or the tines of a fork.  Pat the spice rub all of the over the prepared drumsticks and place them onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray.

Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes, turning once until juices run clear and/or a meat thermometer registers 165°.  Garnish with fresh thyme and serve alongside Armenian Rice.
