Drumsticks were on sale, and I still had a lemon left from Aeghrur's visit, so this is what we came up with to serve with the baked potato wedges.

This is a really easy dump-and-go recipe.

Toss the sauce into a bag with the drumsticks.

Toss it all around and let this marinate for at least 30 minutes. I cleaned up the house, ran to the gym, and showered before returning to this.

Preheat the oven to 425F.

Place the chicken into a baking sheet (broccoli optional, but get your greens!).

Roast for 30 minutes, flip, and go for another 15 minutes.

It's very lemony, which is a pretty different flavor in our home, but it was fun and refreshing. I liked how low effort putting it all together was, and I could see this scaling well for a bigger fam.

I was worried that 6 might not be enough, but we still had leftovers!
