Keeping your weeknight meals interesting can be a challenge. Here is a simple recipe using common ingredients to add to your rotation. Use an oven proof covered skillet or Dutch oven for easy, one pan cleanup. The preparation is mostly hands off, so with just a little effort you can have a nice meal on the table with time to spare.
- 4 chicken drumsticks
- 1/4 cup white rice flour
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 sweet onion, diced
- 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
- 2 ears of sweet corn, cut into thirds
Place 1/4 cup of rice flour in a clean plastic bag. Add the chicken drumsticks, close the bag and shake to coat.
Add olive oil to a heavy, oven proof skillet and begin browning the chicken on all sides along with the onions.
Add the carrots to the pan, season to taste with salt and pepper. Next pour in 1/4 cup of white wine, cover the pan and place in a 375º oven for 45 minutes. Turn the chicken half way through.
During the last 10 minutes of cooking add the sweet corn.
Finish it off under the broiler for 3 minutes on high. The chicken will be falling off the bone tender, the pan juices slightly thickened to create a nice light sauce.
Notes: ♪♫ Use plain white rice flour to coat the chicken, save your pricey all purpose gluten free flour mix for another recipe.
