6 drumsticks


  • 6 (4 ounce) bone-in chicken drumsticks, with skin

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste

  • 1 pinch seasoned salt, or to taste

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a glass baking dish with aluminum foil.

  2. Spread 1/4 cup of olive oil over the bottom of the prepared baking dish and line up drumsticks on top, alternating directions so that they fit. Top with 1 tablespoon of butter each, on the thick part of the chicken. Sprinkle with garlic salt, seasoned salt, salt, and pepper.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Cover chicken with remaining olive oil; continue to bake until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink in the centers, 10 to 15 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Serve.
