Preheat Oven to 300F degrees
1-1/4 Tbsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
Mix ingredients in a large mixing bowl, then coat the skin of each drumstick.
Arrange on a raised rack over a sheet pan. This will allow air to circulate to obtain a crispier skin.
Bake for 30 minutes then raise oven temperature to 425F degrees, bake for an additional 45-60 mins.
About 50 mins in the average, keep an eye on them and get them as crispy as you like.
This is a very simple and easy way to bake drumsticks with a crispier skin, this also works very well for wings. The baking powder helps to dry out the skin (don't bread the exposed meat if you can). Adding the Cayenne Pepper is optional to make them spicy and provide some heat.
For WINGS: Since chicken wings are covered completely in skin, you can toss them in the bowl all together at once to coat them. It's best if you snip the tips off the wings. After baking, toss wings in a bowl with your favorite Wing Sauce. Quite frankly, they are awesome as is and never last to be sauced nor to get a picture taken. My Apologies! Enjoy!
