- 2 lbs chicken drumsticks ($1.98) – I take the skin off of mine
- ½ package of onion soup mix ($0.43)
- 1 can plums in sauce ($1.05)
- Broccoli ($1.20)
- Rice ($.40)
Put rice on to cook. Preheat oven to 400F. Spread chicken out in a shallow, oven-proof dish. Sprinkle it with onion soup mix. Pour can of plums and sauce over top and cover with aluminum foil and place on the middle rack in hot oven for 40 minutes. Before the rice is completely cooked, remove lid and put frozen broccoli on top of rice. Replace the lid and let steam until tender (about five minutes).
