Enjoy this easy chicken and white wine recipe any night of the week for a fancier dinner option.
What You'll Need
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 8 chicken legs
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/3 cups dry white wine or sparkling white grape juice
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chicken broth
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- Warm cooked rice
What to Do
Sprinkle salt and ground nutmeg over chicken.
In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add chicken. Cook 10 minutes or until golden, turning often.
Stir in wine, mushrooms, bell pepper, and scallions; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is done and no pink remains. Remove chicken from skillet, and keep warm.
Whisk together broth and cornstarch until smooth; add to drippings in skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thickened. Serve drumsticks over rice; spoon glaze over chicken.

This was amazing! My grocery store had drumsticks on sale for 49 cents a pound but after I bought them I wanted to do something rather than just grill or bake them. I used green instead of red pepper as that's what I had on hand, regular onion diced, and added some garlic powder with the salt nutmeg. After thickening the gravy I sliced some left over boiled potatoes into the pan, returned the chicken and heated thoroughly. This was even better a few days later as leftovers. A definite keeper!
