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!
