How To Make baked chicken drumsticks

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F, then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2
    In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken, the melted butter, oil and all of the spices; rub the chicken drumsticks until they're evenly coated with the butter/oil and seasonings.
  • 3
    Bake 40 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 165°F. (Check on the chicken about 30 minutes into cooking. If it seems like the outside of the chicken is getting too dark, tent with tin foil while it finishes cooking.)
