Italian Style Chicken Drummies

2.5 lbs. chicken drummies, skin on (6-10 drummies) ($.1.75)
2/3 C. fat free Italian salad dressing (free after coupons)
2 T. Italian seasoning ($.20)
1 T. flour ($.05)
2 plum tomatoes, chopped ($.35)
2 medium onions, quartered ($.15)
8 cloves of garlic, crushed ($.30)
2 T. olive oil ($.20)

Marinade the chicken drummies in the salad dressing for 2-4 hours.

Remove the chicken drummies from the marinade (do not discard the marinade) and lightly pat dry.  Combine the Italian seasoning with the flour.  Toss the chicken with the seasoning to coat well.

Heat oven to 375F.  Drizzle 1 T. olive oil in the bottom of a 13x9" baking pan (with 2" sides or higher).

Add tomatoes, garlic, and onion to the bottom of the pan and place the chicken on top.  Drizzle chicken with final tablespoon of olive oil.

Place uncovered in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until meat temperature reaches 180F.

Serve with rice or potato of choice and a spinach salad topped with orange wedges and parmesan.
