I say 3, DH says 2 hmm

Seems measly

2-3. Sitting firmly on the fence here.

2 is measly. 3 at least

Nutrition Facts
Per 1 drumstick, with 1.5 oz (40g) of meat on it, skin on

Fat 13 g

Boring facts, probably two is best.

For who? A child or an adult?

If I do chicken drumsticks for my dc, I give my 9 year old DS 4 drumsticks! There's not a huge amount of meat on them.

Two's not enough. Three's too many.

An adult.

Two... surely not for a grown man? My oh would be confused if I served him two chicken drumsticks for dinner!

Depends how chunky it is. I've seen some really scrawny ones from time to time

I don’t get the point of drumsticks, there’s not enough meat in them to make them worthwhile.

On that basis, a portion is 0.

Chicken drumsticks aren't a meal on their own, so with a generous portion of veg and maybe a carb alongside I'd say 1 or 2.

Same here, like I think you've given me Ds2, s dinner grin

Two for an adult.

Wow to the 9 year old who eats four. My dc who is older than that gets one and another if they ask, the younger one gets one.

1 chicken leg? Lol that's hilarious.

I got chicken wings in a pub the other day. There were 16 of them.

Wow to the 9 year old who eats four

Yes he'd eat that easily with potatoes and veg..then pudding. He's slim and very active. I'm amazed at the posters saying 1 or 2 especially for an adult!

From the supermarket 3 coz their tiny.
From the butchers 2 and even then theres normally left overs coz they're HUGE

SandLand Mon 22-Jan-18 18:15:48

One for me and the 6 yr old. 2 for the 8 year old, 3 for DH.

MerryShitmas Mon 22-Jan-18 18:16:58

Why is it hilarious? The recommended allowance for meat is something like 3-5oz per day (depending on the usual variables). 2 drumsticks would be your full days worth
most people eat too much meat Imo.
It's one thing to say that you like more meat (that's fine) it's another thing to say it's "hilarious" that someone actually eats the recommended portion of meat hmm

PurpleTraitor Mon 22-Jan-18 18:17:06

I also have two of the slim and very active types.

Maybe bluelonerose has a point re size.

42andcounting Mon 22-Jan-18 18:17:18

My skinny four year old eats at least 1, sometimes 2. We have 3 each (although we are not skinny, but that's not the fault if the chicken, it may be the gin)

takeitandleaveit Mon 22-Jan-18 18:20:36

For a light lunch with salad I'd be happy with one, probably the same for a buffet as I'd be eating loads of other things too, main meal 2 or possibly 3 depending on what else we're having as well.

Having said that, I don't really like drumsticks much.

Cabininthewoods69 Mon 22-Jan-18 18:24:48

My family would laugh at me unless they got 5 each and my girl is 9 but very tall and loves meat. Also I don't serve up they help themselves from serving plates on table as I find it easier because I'm lazy xx

If I'm having to wash a baking tray, I'm going to make sure it's worth my while. wink
