Hi this is Pranika! I wanted to cook a good meal with my husband for our moms and family. We wanted something kid-friendly, relatively fast, and delicious. Everyone in the family loves roasted chicken so we opted for that with roasted cauliflower, rice pilaf with corn, and an escarole salad with cucumber, snow peas, and radishes.
Roasted Chicken with Cherry Tomatoes
3.2 lbs chicken drumsticks
1 tbsp + 1 tsp herb salt **
2 tbsp olive oil
1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
3 garlic cloves, diced
Toss drumsticks with 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp herb salt in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and shake well. Spread drumsticks on baking sheet pan in one layer.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven and flip drumsticks; add cherry tomato mixture to sheet pan. Bake for 20 more minutes at 400 degrees.
**In the absence of herb salt, combine your choice of dried herbs with sea salt or kosher salt (herbs such as basil, oregano, thyme)
