Easily a 5 star recipe because it's soooo easy and good. I've been trying lots of different recipes for drumsticks lately and none of them have done anything for me. This one is awesome. I'll make this all the time for sure. Read More

You really have to be hungry to eat the chicken. It can taste better if you add a DASH of salt and pepper. Read More

I was excited to try this different method of cooking chicken. I have to say I'm disappointed with the results. The skin ended up really soggy so we took it off (and therefore lost all the seasoning as well). I have to imagine that the salt and pepper amounts were a typo...I used far less than 2 tablespoons. The onion was ok but it didn't particularly add anything to the chicken nor was it anything special by itself. If you're looking for yummy baked onion try Vidalia Heaven on this site. This recipe wasn't bad it just wasn't special. On the plus side this was a quick and easy recipe both in prep and cleanup. If I make this again I'll make the following changes: use skinless chicken add some paprika for color and add some carrots and green beans along with the onion for additional color/flavor. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was a very delicious recipe with some nice kick to it! I only used half the called for amount for the salt and pepper. I put the S/P and allspice into a bag and shook the chicken in it to coat. I also sauteed the onions and garlic for a few minutes before adding it to the chicken. Read More

I added a few more spices to the chicken (dash of ground sage and paprika) and used onion and garlic powders instead of fresh. The chicken turned out AMAZING! This is by far the most delicious way I've baked chicken. The aluminum foil is a great idea as it really allows the spices to infuse into the drumsticks. I would probably take the foil off the chicken 5-10 minutes earlier in the future because I like my drumsticks a little crispier but they were still fabulous. Also I used kosher drumsticks which I have found to be juicier. Great recipe and I will definitely be making this again soon!! Read More

This simple recipe makes fantastic drumsticks. I couldn't help but to tamper with the seasonings by using salt pepper poultry seasoning garlic powder and paprika after removing the skin. Next time I will sauté the onions and garlic a bit before adding them. Read More

The chicken just cooked (covered) for the 40 mins - I took the foil off and it looked raw - I put it back in for another 30 mins - will see.....right now not sure. I had no "Shake-N-Bake" so I was looking for something different - not sure if this will beit - but I will post in 24 mins. Read More

This was so much fun to make!! I just used drum sticks and cooked them for 40 min. The taste was to die for and I can't wait to make it again. Adding the onions and garlic at the last 10 min. made the Chicken taste so very good. Read More
