How To Prepare Creamy Chicken Drumsticks In Tomato Sauce

These chicken drumsticks have crispy skin, juicy inside, and mouthwatering flavors that will tantalize your taste buds.

Tips for making the dish more flavorful

To give the chicken drumsticks even more taste, you may also drizzle some sesame oil over them. This is entirely optional but gives the chicken a special touch.

If you want your chicken to taste like teriyaki, you may also add a few teaspoons of rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.

If you don't have a skillet, you may use a regular pan to sear the chicken on the stovetop.

If you don't like thighs, you can substitute bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts.


6 chicken drumsticks

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 cups broccoli florets

1 cup mushrooms

8 ripe tomatoes, diced

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1 tub reduced-fat or fat-free cream cheese or substitute with Greek yogurt for a healthier option

Spring onions to garnish


In a sizable skillet or frying pan, cook the onion and garlic until aromatic and tender.

Add the chicken drumsticks and cook them, occasionally turning them golden on both sides.

Add the broccoli, mushrooms, and tomato, and simmer until the tomato softens and the broccoli just starts to turn color.

Pour the soup into the pan, lower the heat, and let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Whisk the tomato paste in the soup to thicken the sauce. Simmer for an additional five minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cream cheese or Greek yogurt and top with the chopped onions.

Serve with Chapati, ugali, quinoa, or rice.
