  • I put mine in the crockpot and cook them with BBQ sauce.  Or sometimes I will make a chicken dinner in the crock pot with  cut up veggies and put the chicken on top with a bit of seasoning. Other times I cook them plain and then take the meat off to use in chicken pot pie, chicken enchiladas, chicken salad, chicken noodle casserole....

  • chicken and noodles is best with dark meat!! and home made chicken noodle soup...if youre into mexican dishes, you can pull the chicken apart and use it for chicken tacos or loaded nachos with chicken on can season it with chili powder and cumin powder to season say it was a good buy...plenty to do with it!

  • Just lay them out in a baking dish or pan, pour some cream soup, (your choice), over the top, sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over the top and place them in the oven at about 350 till done. Or, actually you can put whatever you like over the top. Experiment and have fun!!

  • you have baked, bbq, fried, stewed with potatoes, tomatoes and whatever else you like in it which could be placed on rice or noodles there's soup, chicken and rice, steamed with onions and peppers, roasted, boiled. then there is oven fried where you coat with mayo then roll in breadcrumbs and bake, with this one you can also add a little parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs for a different zesty flavor. You can also coat in honey mustard sauce and bake or some lemon pepper seasoning. Experiment with what sounds good to you.

  • Here's a dish that's a bit more elegant than a casserole, and the kids love it too!

    Chicken Drumsticks Pierre

    1/2 c. flour
    1 tsp. salt
    2 dashes pepper
    16 chicken drumsticks
    6 Tbsp. butter
    15 oz. can diced tomatoes
    1 c. water
    4 Tbsp. brown sugar
    4 Tbsp. vinegar (we use white)
    4 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. chili powder
    2 tsp. dry mustard
    1 tsp. celery seeds
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    6 to 10 drops hot pepper sauce (optional)

    Mix together the flour, salt, and pepper. Coat the drum sticks with the seasoned flour. Melt the butter in a skillet with a lid. Brown the chicken over medium heat on all sides. Remove the chicken from the pan. In the same pan, combine the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer about 45 minutes.

    We like to serve this over hot boiled rice.

  • I don't eat any meat that has a bone in it so I can't help you-I have to eat all meat boneless...the bone really grosses me out.
