This recipe came out perfect. I made a couple of changes based on what I had on hand and not from dissatisfaction with the recipe. - Pan spray: I mixed all of the dry ingredients together in olive oil, applying the mixture with a basting/pastry brush. - Flour: I crushed boxed stuffing cubes in the blender and sprinkled those on instead. I followed all other instructions to the letter. Be careful of chicken juice if you are using a shallower pan like I did. The drumsticks came out great, very tender and tasty! Read More

I was a bit skeptical at first because the seasonings and flour had just been sprinkled on. While I was prepping, I thought 'I've gotta get my hands dirty, these babies look like they need a good rub!' But opted to follow directions precisely, leaving out the poultry seasoning and subbing that with a dash of sage. I also just drizzled sunflower oil over the drumsticks, as the cooking spray I had probably would have blasted the flour and seasonings right off of the chicken and all over the walls. I was astonished at how well they turned out! I let them bake covered for 3 hours and uncovered for 20 minutes since the drumsticks I used were still a bit frosty after leaving them thawing in the fridge for 2 and 1/2 days. The excess flour in the pan made me wonder, but the juice from the chicken cooked with it, turning it into a nice broth. I'll most definitely be using this recipe again. Thank you for posting this!

I made this exactly as written, and it was a huge hit with the whole family. Easy-peasy to make, and fall-off-the-bone moist too! Read More

Followed recipe, with the exception of cooked in a crock pot 4 hours on high. I was doing a lot of baking at the time, and I saw reviews of people. using crock pot. For easier cleanup, also used a slow cooker bag (Dollar General brand), I have found they are just as good as Reynolds and a lot cheaper. The meat is falling off the bone. Was so tasty, I forgot about the barbecue sauce. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More
