Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time55 mins
Servings: 4 persons


  • 6-8 chicken drumsticks ($2.03) Bought a package of organic drumsticks for $3.03 and used $1 store mailer coupon
  • Drizzles of olive oil ($.05)
  • 1/4 cup honey ($.40)
  • Dashes of cinnamon and ginger ($.05)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder ($.02)
  • 1 medium acorn squash (about 2 lb.) ($.99) On sale for $.49/lb at my grocery store!
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened ($.40)
  • 1/4 cup honey ($.40)
  • Dash of cinnamon and ginger ($.05)
  • 1 cup brown rice ($.40)


  • In medium saucepan, cook 1 cup brown rice according to directions on the package. This takes about 45-50 minutes, so plan accordingly!
  • Place the drumsticks into baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over the drumsticks and then pour the honey over the drumsticks.
  • Sprinkle with a few dashes of cinnamon, ginger and garlic powder. Using back of spoon or fingers, spread the honey over and under the drumsticks. (Will be thick, and that's OK!) Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes...but the longer the better! Bake uncovered at400 for 45-55 minutes. Once the chicken is in the oven...start on the squash.
  • Cut acorn squash in half and scoop out seeds with spoon (and save for roasting). Cut the squash into wedges along the "seams" of the squash.
