Cooking Stuffed Chicken Drumsticks:
Step 1: Cut the vegetables.We rinse the bell pepper under running water, remove the seeds, cut it in half and chop it into a small cube about 1 cm in size. After that we transfer it to a deep plate.
We wash the tomatoes under running water and remove the skin. It can be removed with a sharp knife or scalded vegetables with boiling water. Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and spread to the bell pepper.
Then go to the cheese. It can be cut into the same small cube or grated with large holes. Add chopped cheese to pepper and tomatoes.
You can use any greens for this recipe, for example, basil leaves, parsley, dill or cilantro, the main thing is that it is to your taste. We wash the greens under running water, shake over the sink and finely chop on a cutting board. After we shift it to vegetables and cheese.

Then we put them in the form with the filling up, sprinkle with vegetable oil and send to the oven, preheated to 180 degrees. Chicken drumsticks are baked until fully cooked for 30 - 40 minutes.
