Has to be one of the most economical and best tasting proteins I can think of? $6 for around 20 pieces. Been slow cooking them on the grill and can't get enough. Makes me want to slap people that argue it's too expensive to eat healthy.

I love chicken too. But how much can you eat.

Try this, its the bomb

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

For the chicken:

8 chicken drumsticks skinned (or chicken thighs*)

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp sweet paprika (I used smoked paprika)

1/2 tsp poultry seasoning (I used dried thyme instead)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 cup buttermilk

juice of 1/2 lemon

cooking spray

For the coating:

2/3 cup panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup crushed cornflake crumbs

2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

1.5 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp dried parsley flakes

1.5 tsp sweet paprika

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp chili powder

 

For the chicken: In a medium bowl, season the chicken with the salt, paprika, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and black pepper. Pour the buttermilk and lemon juice over the chicken and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours, preferably overnight.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place a rack on a baking sheet and lightly spray with oil.

For the coating: In a shallow bowl, combine the panko, cornflake crumbs, Parmesan, salt, parsley, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder.

Remove the chicken from the buttermilk, dredge each piece in the crumb mixture, and put the pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. Spray the tops of the chicken with oil.

Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 40 to 45 minutes.

I like to roast them after a egg wash and sprinkled with Montreal chicken rub. The skin is the best part!

I made them last week. Nice and simple on the grill with BBQ sauce. Been a long time since I made drumsticks. The wife is not a fan. We ate them a lot when I was a kid. We were poor, but they were always good.

Drumsticks may be the worst part of the chicken

When you order wings, it's the part nobody really wants to eat....
