The Best Oven "fried" Chicken Drumsticks

Ready in 45 minutes

This is very yummy. It's super easy, tastes like pan-fried.

I recently have had to modify my diet tobe wheat free. This recipe works well using Pamelas baking mix.

"Made this tonight for supper. I loved it and my husband thought it was ok bur tasted like fish breading! I used an egg and a little milk to help dredge the chicken, i like a lot of breading! I did add the paprika which was a great addition! Will be making this again!!"

Are you making this? 
10 each Chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoon Butter
1/2 cup Bisquick
2 teaspoon Seasoning Salt
1/4 teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Original recipe makes 5 Servings



Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit.

Melt butter in a 9"x13" x 2" baking dish.

Mix Bisquick, Seasoning Salt and Pepper.

Dredge each chicken leg in the bisquick mixture and place in the baking dish. Bake for 20-30 minutes and then turn the chicken pieces. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes more until chicken is done.

Remove to serving platter and enjoy. Yummy.


Note: The basic recipe can be 'spiced' up adding some of your favorite spices. I've changed it by adding one or more of the following: paprika, garlic powder or salt, McCormicks Chicken or McCormicks Garlic Herb etc... The possibilities are endless.

Now that the kids are expanding their palates I have recently "kicked" this one up a bit, every time I make it. I don't want to change this recipe since it's been bookmarked (and I haven't measured the amounts). But always I add salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed rosemary, thyme and when I'm feeling spicy a touch of cayenne!

Gluten Free? Try using Pamela's Baking Mix

Also, note that if cooking times need to be adjusted for different cuts of chicken. Enjoy.

Chicken was juicy, and the kids liked it. Easy to prepare, and with a ziploc bag to coat pieces ala shake-n-bake, clean up was a breeze.
