Oven Fried Drumsticks

Oven Fried Drumsticks

These chicken drumsticks will cook more quickly and evenly if you place them in a single layer in the baking pan.  If you don’t have a pan large enough then divide the oil and drumsticks between two baking pans. 


10 Drumsticks

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Cup Unbleached Flour

1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika

2 Teaspoons Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

Preheat your oven to 450° F.  Pour the olive oil evenly over the bottom of a large baking pan (15x10x1 inch).  In a large size bowl combine the flour, smoked paprika, ground pepper, kosher salt and garlic powder.  Mix well and pour into a medium size paper bag.  Add the drumsticks two at a time to the bag.  Shake to coat the drumsticks.  Repeat until you have shaken all of the chicken.  Arrange the drumsticks in the baking pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Turn once about 15 minutes into cooking.  Cook until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.  Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving dish.  Serve nice and hot.  Serves 4 to 5
