Crispy Baked Chicken Drumsticks
Yields: 4
  • 3 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ tbsp garlic powder
  • 1½ tbsp onion powder
  • 1½ tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Italian herbs, dried
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp bouillon
  1. Wash your chicken legs well and then place them on a cooking sheet uniformly, single layered.
  2. Marinade with spices and drizzled oil for at least 2 hours in fridge, though overnight would work best.
  3. When ready, preheat the oven to 425°.
  4. Reapply more oil and herbs to ensure ultimate crispiness to the outer shell after marinated.
  5. Line your baking pan with foil and if possible, top it with a wire rack to allow the juices to drop while the chicken drums are cooking.
  6. On a single layer, arrange the chicken pieces.
  7. Once the oven has completed preheating, pop your chicken pieces in to cook. Place them in oven’s the middle rack, if possible, to allow even cooking from all sides.Note: Make sure your baking rack is deep enough that any caught oil will not spill over.
  8. Allow your chicken legs to bake for a total of 45-50 minutes, rotating halfway through in between.
  9. Once they're done and nicely crispy, serve with your favorite sauce and sides.
