I was particularly inspired by this post at Dine and Dish for Garlic Chicken Legs for the Crockpot. But it wasn't her recipe that had me curious. It was her total rave about Chaos in the Kitchen's Baked Chicken Legs. With a review like that I just had to make them.
I think you'll agree they turned out pretty gorgeous!
I took a bunch of pics because they came out perfectly browned. I did a very simple baked drumstick. Salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Bake at 475. Nothing to write a cookbook about. But check them out.
And yes, they tasted as good as they looked. They are very basic, simple, easy. And so delicious. Bonus, they're cheap, too. I got 5 drumsticks at the store for $1.50. Probably the least expensive thing I've made in a long time. And so good I'll be making them again.
So take a lesson from these drumsticks. Simple baked chicken can be an amazing meal. I know I forget that a lot in my search for new flavors. But I guess there's a reason it's a classic.
