I use to have chicken drumsticks all the time as a child. My mom made soy sauce drumsticks and I remember getting overly excited every time. Maybe it’s just me but drumsticks are fun to eat! I enjoy holding it by the handle and eating off the bone!
Chicken drumsticks are also easier to bake without drying out unlike chicken tenders or breast. I like to keep the skin on because it gets crispy which helps keep the meat tender while the bones help enhance flavor. Same goes with wings!
I have my usual chicken recipes because they’re easy and quick to make – but I decided to venture out with this one. I’m so glad I did because this easily makes it to the top of my list of chicken recipes for sure! I’ll be incorporating more chicken drumsticks into my meals now.
I have garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, oregano, basil, cayenne, salt and pepper. All these herbs/spices are mixed together in a large bowl, coated with the chicken and then baked. Easy preparation methods are the way to go! This recipe is easy and packed with flavor! Definitely my type.
I had two chicken drumsticks as my lunch with some sauteed snow peas, 1/2 an avocado (YES to healthy fats), cauliflower curried rice and cayenne hummus. Let me say.. this bowl was a bit spicy and so packed with flavors! I definitely will be making this again no doubt.
