Prep Time



Total Time






cups frozen potatoes O’Brien with onions and peppers (from 28-oz bag), thawed
bag (12 oz) Green Giant™ Steamers™ frozen sweet peas, thawed
can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
teaspoons curry powder
teaspoon salt
tablespoons all-purpose flour
teaspoon paprika
teaspoon garlic salt
chicken drumsticks
tablespoon vegetable oil
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir together potatoes, peas, tomatoes, 2 teaspoons of the curry powder and the salt. Spread evenly in baking dish.
  2. In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix remaining 2 teaspoons curry powder, the flour, paprika and garlic salt; shake to mix. Add drumsticks; seal bag, and shake to coat.
  3. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook drumsticks in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently, until skin is brown (cook 6 drumsticks at a time if all don’t fit in skillet). Place drumsticks in 2 rows lengthwise over potato mixture, alternating direction of drumsticks to cover potato mixture. Cover tightly with foil.
  4. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake about 10 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (180°F).

If canned vegetables are on sale, use two cans (15 oz each) Green Giant® sweet peas, drained, instead of the frozen peas.
Curry powder can be found in the spice and herb section of your local grocery store. Curry powder is actually a blend of herbs, spices and seeds. The blend can vary dramatically. The type most often found in grocery stores resembles the blends of southern India. The “Madras” variety will be hotter than the standard variety.
