Greg, her husband brought these to her to prepare. Telling her they are inedible is less than helpful. What she's looking for are ways to prepare them that are not on her list of "ways to avoid". Lordy, I'd happily choose different pieces as well, but you have to make do with what you've got right?

This one I will try first since we both love onions & garlic and haven't had the lemon pepper flavor in some time now. Thanks.

I like the sweet and tangy idea, I will try this one pretty soon. We actually had fried chicken with gravy and buttermilk biscuits a couple of days ago. Thanks.

Toss in some lemon juice and bake them on a cookie sheet with some melted butter.

Finally the old smother it with cream of something soup and use the gravy over noodles, potatoes etc.

Lately I have been buying a whole chicken and stuffing it with odds and ends for an old fashioned Sunday dinner type meal. The leftovers give me a little more variety for about the same price as the legs.
The molasses/tomato BBQ sauce suggestion sounds pretty good. I will definitely save this one for my arsenal. I also do an oven sort of shake n bake thing much like yours. And funny you should mention whole chicken. My husband's uncle owns a small Restuarant and we are given umm... peculiar gifts of food from time to time (not complaining at all). Well our most recent gift is a whole frozen chicken. There comes another thread.LOL. Thanks.

I always French my legs or thighs. Or I debone them completely. Then treat and cook like cutlets. When they are Frenched, you can pick up the legs and gnaw on them easier.

We don't have drumsticks on a repeated basis, just chicken in general. Thanks anyway.

Ok, this would probably be embarrassing if you guys knew me personally but what's chimichurri sauce? I'm betting that I've had it, & just didn't known what it was called.

I caught a Rachel Ray Meals/Food for 5 days (?) show this morning. She took homemade salsa (but jarred would work), added some EVOO and marinated chicken breasts in the salsa (she cooked them on a stovetop grill--I'll probably end up cooking them in the oven when I'm at my folks). She also used some of the salsa (without the EVOO) to make a Spanish-style rice. It was super easy re: the time and the ingredients, and looked as if it would be very good. I suspect the recipe is on the Food Network web site. I'd probably serve green beans instead of the black beans and a fresh tossed salad with this. I'm making this for my folks when I'm in MN. It is something my dad could make easily and they always have jarred salsa in the fridge/pantry, chicken breasts in the freezer, and they love spanish rice.
