Oven Baked Drumsticks

Tried & True Recipes

Oven Baked Chicken - one of the easiest, yummiest chicken recipes you'll try! It's a new favorite dinner idea.

Who here loves CHICKEN!!

When I’m feeling motivated to eat healthier, it seems like chicken is all I eat. Even though there are so many wonderful ways to make chicken, it can still get a little old sometimes. So, we’re always on the look out for new ways to make chicken exciting like this Oven Baked Chicken that we are sharing today. These drumsticks were easy to put together and were a HUGE hit with everyone in the family. The batter coating the chicken is light and tasty and just perfect enough to make you like your fingers. The best part is that it tastes just like Kentucky Fried Chicken but they’re not fried at all – they’re BAKED!! I was surprised that they tasted so good for being baked, but they were, which means I’ll feel less guilty when I have a few. 😉

If you’re a chicken lover like us, you’ll definitely enjoy this simple and easy recipe. Check it out…

    What do you do with the butter once it’s melted? Add it to the dry ingredients or baste the chicken with it before coating it with the dry ingredients?

  2. 4

    Do I pour the butter on the chicken or in the pan?

  3. 5

    What do I do with the spray butter?

  4. 6

    Can I use drakes fry mix instead of bisquick? It’s what I have on hand

  5. 8

    I would cut down the sauce next time. It was a little salty. I dipped the chicken in the melted butter first and then to the mixed ingredients.

    This looks so good! I added it to my menu plan for next week 🙂 What do we use the spray butter for? Definitely not the 9×13 since it’s plenty buttered already, right?

  7. 11

    What is bisquick mix? I’m from Sweden so If I know maybe I can find the Swedish equivalent.
    Thanks 😊

  8. 13

    Can someone answer what was asked, what is the purpose of the spray butter?

    • 14

      We use the spray butter to coat the chicken before putting in the oven, to give it that crispy, golden taste. We also sprayed once during the baking process. Hope that helps everyone 🙂 Thank you!

    This looks delicious but we’re not drumstick fans…can this be done with wings instead. How long should I bake them???

    • 16

      I haven’t tried that. I’m not sure what the baking time would be for those. Maybe a little less, since they are smaller?? I’m sorry, I wish I knew. BUt, those would be so good!

    The step about how to use the spray butter seems pretty important – maybe consider adding it to the instructions? Making this for the 2nd time now, btw, since my kiddos loved it so much plus we’re bringing dinner to a friend and these make plenty to share!
