BBQ Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet Potato Fries

Do you have a meal that everyone in your family LOVES?! One that all of the kids ask for and everyone is happy and satisfied when you are all finished eating? 
Well- this is it for us! And this is what we are cooking up for our Memorial Day dinner!

Grilled Chicken Drumsticks-

Organic Chicken Legs- I get mine from Sam’s Club in bulk!
Grill over charcoal for approximately 30 minutes or until cooked all the way through. 
Remove from grill and place in a large tupperware container. Add 1/4 cup Organicville BBQ sauce (or any clean eating BBQ sauce of your choice). Put the lid on the container and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!!!!
Remove lid and VIOLA!! Chicken is ready!
While cooking the chicken- bake the sweet potato fries
You can make your own or do like I do– I buy ALEXIA BRAND SWEET POTATO FRIES! They are in the freezer section and they are clean as well. 
Bake about 25 minutes on 425 degrees! I drizzle a little bit of EVOO onto the cookie sheet before placing the fries on it! Makes them a little crispier when baking. 
Organic spring mix (again- I buy mine from Sam’s Club)
slice up some baby sweet peppers and we top ours with a little bit of oil and vinegar! 
And- there you have it! A dinner that takes less than 30 minutes that everyone will LOVE!!!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Oven Roasted Chicken

Oven Roasted Chicken with sweet potato fries and green beans
1 whole chicken
1 TBSP. Olive Oil
garlic powder
1 lemon

This is how to cook it–I pat the chicken dry and put it in a roasting pan or a casserole dish. Coat it with the olive oil and then I season it with some salt/pepper and a little garlic powder. Then I squeeze the juice of one lemon over it and add a little parsley! Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to 375 degrees and continue to cook until juice runs clear (165 degrees with a food thermometer). Usually about another 50 minutes to one hour! 
Serve it with sweet potato fries and fresh green beans! This is always a hit 🙂
