  • 1/4 Cup Light Butter
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 1 Shallot, Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Shredded
  • 1/4 Cup White Cooking Wine
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Pat the drumsticks dry with a paper towel and season with pappy’s seasoning & garlic pepper. *You’ll want to use a lined baking sheet with aluminum foil (to catch the juices from the chicken and for easy clean up) as well as a raised rack to place the chicken on top of*. Place the raised rack on top of the baking sheet and lay drumsticks on the raised rack. This will help ensure the drumsticks cook evenly throughout.
  • Place rack of drumsticks into the oven on the top shelf and cook for about an hour. *Cooking times may vary but the most important thing is to make sure the chicken has cooked to an internal temperature of 180 degrees before taking out of the oven.*
  • While the drumsticks are cooking, measure and cook the brown rice in a rice maker on “brown rice” setting (about 25-30 minutes). Cooking times may also vary.
  • Once the drumsticks have reached an internal temperature of 180 degrees, take them out of the oven and let them sit for 10 minutes.
  • While the drumsticks are “resting”, it’s time to make the homemade white sauce!
  • Once the ingredients are chopped & ready to go, melt the butter on medium-low heat. Add the garlic and shallot. Saute until the garlic/shallot mixture is a golden brown color. 
  • Increase the heat to medium and add the parmesan cheese and white wine. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer and whisk for 1-2 minutes, then add the parsley. Remove from heat.
  • Place drumsticks over the bed of rice & immediately pour wine sauce over drumsticks. 
  • Garnish with sliced lemon and fresh parsley. Enjoy!
