Meijer Bargain Recipe of the week- Parmesan Chicken

Bargain Meal of the Week

Meijer has chicken drumsticks on sale for .99 a lb! Every time I look at them I think of hot wings... not exactly kid friendly. Then I found this recipe. Since drumsticks are perfect for little hands to hold and eat, I am super excited to try this out! Happy Eating Y'all!!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.
