Recipe: Crispy Baked Free-Range Chicken Drumsticks
- 8 free-range chicken drumsticks
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Cooking spray or olive oil for greasing
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and place a wire rack on a baking sheet. Grease the wire rack with cooking spray or a light coating of olive oil.
- In a large bowl, pour the buttermilk. Add the chicken drumsticks to the bowl, ensuring they are fully submerged in the buttermilk. Allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
- In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
- Remove each drumstick from the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off, and roll them in the seasoned flour mixture until well coated. Shake off any excess flour.
- Place the coated drumsticks on the greased wire rack on the baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the drumsticks are golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
- For extra crispiness, you can turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking.
- Remove the crispy baked free-range chicken drumsticks from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
