How To Bake Chicken Drumsticks
It’s time to get serious about chicken.
Are you ready because this is it, folks? You’re about to learn how to bake some seriously delicious chicken drumsticks. Send your taste buds to heaven.
Let’s first break down the nutritional content of chicken. Did you know that chicken contains 2-3 times as much polyunsaturated fat as red meat? What’s polyunsaturated fat? When eaten in moderation, polyunsaturated fats can have a beneficial effect on your heart. Basically, they’re the good fats and the ones you want to eat in place of saturated and trans fat. Chicken is also a great source of protein. Great if you’re working out.
Chicken can be cooked in many ways and the method in which your chicken is cooked has a large impact on the nutritional value of your food. Frying chicken, for example, boosts the meat’s fat content. Baking is the healthy cooking option for chicken as it increases the protein content without increasing fat. Baked and grilled chicken are actually nutritious additions to your diet, so drop the fryer and turn on the oven!
This drumstick dish is a simple recipe that allows you to enjoy chicken the healthier way! Baked chicken drumsticks help boost your iron intake, as well as your protein and Vitamin B-12 intake. Forget about dipping your chicken in fatty frying oil; bake it instead! Follow this easy tutorial to learn how to bake chicken drumsticks that are flavorful and healthy.
Pair your chicken with delicious homemade BBQ sauce!
What You’ll Need:
- Chicken drumstick (washed and dried)
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- curry powder
- chicken seasoning
- cayenne pepper
- 25 grams butter
Get a clean plastic bag. This bag will be used to mix the spices you will toss your drumsticks in.
Put all the spices into the bag and give it a nice shake to mix them together well.
Place the chicken drumsticks inside the plastic bag and shake it vigorously to ensure the drumsticks are nice and evenly coated with spices.
After giving the chicken a nice shake, open the bag and check if the drumsticks are coated and well-seasoned.
Next, get a baking tin and cover it with tin foil.
Put the butter in the baking tin and place the tin inside your preheated oven. Wait until the butter has melted.
After the butter has melted, slowly spread it all over the baking tin.
Place the drumsticks into the baking tin.
Leave the chicken inside the oven for about 30 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 Celsius). If you have a bigger or thicker part of a chicken such as the thigh, give it an extra 10-15 minutes to bake.
After 30 minutes, pull the baking tin out and turn the drumsticks over.
Place the baking tin back into the oven and cook for 30 minutes more.
After the second 30 minutes, your drumsticks are cooked and ready to go! Place them on a table and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
Transfer the drumsticks onto a plate and gather the butter sauce your chicken cooked in.
Pour the remaining sauce onto the chicken.
Your well-seasoned, butter baked chicken drumsticks are ready to be served and enjoyed!

The entire length of time should be 30 minutes…not 30, turn and 30 more.
