Season the drumsticks well with salt and pepper on all sides. Pour olive oil on the pan and put it on the stove to heat. Fry the chicken in a pan for 6-7 minutes on one side and 5 minutes on the other side. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.

Add a little more olive oil to the same pan, add the red onion along with a pinch of salt and let it sauté for one minute, Add the garlic and thyme and sauté for an additional 30 seconds.

In the pan, then add the eggplant and zucchini and stew everything together with the onion, add the tomatoes and broth, mix and let it “throw the wrench”.

Towards the end of cooking, check the taste, add salt and pepper if necessary and add a little sugar if the tomatoes are too sour, add basil leaves and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
