    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook drumsticks in oil 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until chicken is well browned on all sides.

    Stir in rice, broth and frozen vegetables. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

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.
