8
chicken drumsticks (about 2 lb)

cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1
bag (12 oz) Green Giant™ Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables

Steps

Expert Tips

To reduce the cost in this recipe, you can use 3 cups of water instead of the chicken broth, although the chicken broth does give more flavor.

If chicken thighs are on sale, they would make a great substitute for the drumsticks.
