How to make Chicken Drumsticks Recipe:
Step one: Start by placing your chicken drumsticks into a large freezer bag.
Step two: Next you will want to place your oil and Worcestershire sauce in a mixing bowl. Whisk in all remaining ingredients then pour this over your chicken.
Step three: Marinate overnight for best results or cook immediately. You don’t have to marinate them over night but I think the flavor gets through the chicken best when you do. If you want them right now then go ahead and skip to the next step.
Step four: Once marinated go ahead and preheat your oven. Prepare a dish with aluminum foil. I find the foil helps keep the chicken crispy and it makes clean up really easy. Pour chicken into the dish and bake.
How long to cook Chicken Drumsticks Recipe:
I cooked mine for 30-40 minutes. Time will vary deepening on the size of your chicken. My chicken was very think and needed the extra time. If you are cooking smaller chicken drumsticks then you will want to check on them around 20 minutes. Use a kitchen thermometer to make sure they are at a safe temperature before serving.
