The Crunchiest Oven Fried Chicken Drumsticks (with two different coatings)

48

Who doesn't love fried chicken?! Can you imagine enjoying it guilt free? These baked drumsticks are just as crunchy as the fried ones, but without any extra fat or greasiness.

For coating the drumsticks, I experimented two variations: seasoned flour with corn starch & seasoned panko. They were family tested. Both were delicious and crunchy, but the panko was superior in providing more texture & crispiness. For marination, I did an overnight seasoned buttermilk brine, which did wonders in flavoring and tenderizing the chicken.

So the result was just perfect: crunchy and crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside 👌
