One Dish Sicy BBQ Chicken Drumsticks & Spaghetti Squash-, One Dish Spicy BBQ Chicken Drumsticks & Spaghetti Squash-6

I know a few of you are probably wondering why I chose to use chicken legs instead of a leaner piece of chicken like chicken breast. To be honest, I used to be totally afraid of anything other than fat-free chicken! But last year I was seeing a lot of chicken thighs and decided I would give them a try. HOLY cow!! If you have never eaten a chicken thigh I suggest you do it asap! Or even give this One Dish Spaghetti Squash & Spicy BBQ Chicken Drumsticks recipe a try with chicken thighs instead! They are the most flavorful piece of chicken ever! Then I tackled chicken wings. Insanely delicious! So, it only made sense that I give chicken legs a try! 

The chicken in this One Dish Spaghetti Squash & Spicy BBQ Chicken Drumsticks recipe turned out beyond tender, juicy and delicious! But, if you are following a lower fat diet or are still afraid to try anything other than chicken breast you can easily swap that for the chicken legs! Just be mindful of your cooking time.
