Winter baked chicken drumsticks

Whether for weeknight quick meals or for some delicious weekend dinner, baked chicken drumsticks are the easiest way to get dinner on the table! The skin crisps up in the oven, the seasoning is simple and perfect, and the chicken legs come out juicy every time!

Have you noticed how kids, in general, gravitate towards chicken drumsticks when you roast a chicken? It may be because kids like to eat with their hands or it may be because chicken legs are delicious. Whatever the case, chicken drumsticks are the star of the show. During the Winter, when we can’t be grilling outside, baked chicken drumsticks are the go-to recipe! A simple baked chicken drumsticks recipe is simple enough that anyone can do this and it creates juicy chicken, crispy skin, and it’s all perfectly seasoned!

The secret behind delicious baked chicken drumsticks is the seasoning. You don’t need to get to fancy! A simple mixture of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt, and pepper will do the trick. Coat the chicken with the spices and then place it onto a greased baking sheet.

The second tip that is very important is to bake the chicken drumsticks at a high heat (preferably at 425º degrees). If the oven isn’t good and hot, the chicken skin won’t get crispy and no one enjoy rubbery chicken skin. It will take approximately 45 minutes for the drumsticks to be ready to be devoured.

And there you have it! A tasty chicken dish in the middle of the Winter that is so delicious!
