These chicken drumsticks are packed with flavor yet they are easy to prepare. The addition of baking powder will help crisp up the skin. I prefer to make my own Cajun spice mix but feel free to use store-bought Cajun mix.

Instructions Checklist

  • Pat drumsticks with paper towels until dry.

  • Combine baking powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, thyme, oregano, cumin and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl. Add melted butter and stir until combined. Add drumsticks and toss until fully coated. Place drumsticks into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until drumsticks are no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

To achieve a darker char, place drumsticks under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes after baking.

Instead of lining with aluminum foil you can spray the baking pan with nonstick spray.
