What You Need to Have to Make Chicken Drumsticks and Vegetables
The first thing you need to get to make the Chicken Drumstick and Vegetables recipe is the chicken drumsticks. I like to get mine with the bone-in and skin on top. I feel like the skin and bone add more flavor to the drumsticks while they bake. Once you have your drumsticks, you will need your vegetables.
I like to use carrots and potatoes because I think they taste best with the chicken. However, you can use your favorite vegetables. I had switched it up before and used different vegetables in the past that were just as good. Some good options to consider include sweet potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, and sliced green peppers.
How to Store Chicken Drumstick and Vegetables
When storing any of the extra chicken and vegetables you might have, you have a few options. I like to put some chicken and vegetables in multiple meal prep containers because I can quickly reheat them for less than a minute and have the leftovers for lunch or a quick dinner when I do not feel like cooking.
Besides using meal prep containers to store the leftovers, you can always choose to store the Chicken Drumstick and Vegetables in a large food storage container or a large food storage bag. Put your meal in the fridge to keep it fresh for up to three days. You can freeze the food, but I think it tastes best fresh. If you do want to freeze it, just make sure that you pull it out and end up eating it within two months.

- 6 pounds chicken drumsticks
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 pound baby carrots
- 1 red onion, cut into wedges
- 2 (12 ounce) bags frozen green beans
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare two (9×13) casserole dishes with nonstick cooking spray. Large rimmed sheet pans can also be used but are not recommended for freezing.
In a small bowl, mix together the dry seasonings together.
Divide the vegetables between the two casserole dishes. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with half of the seasoning mix. (Reserve the other half for seasoning the chicken.) Toss the vegetables to coat.
Rub the chicken legs with the remaining seasoning (or place into a large zip-top container and toss with seasoning.) Lay chicken legs over the vegetables.
Cover the casserole dishes with aluminum foil and bake for 60 minutes.
Remove the foil and check the chicken for an internal temperature of 165 degrees without touching the bone.
Turn the oven to broil and allow the chicken to crisp as desired.
