Baked Chicken Drumsticks
Chicken is one of those dinner staples that you get used to cooking. You pick a few different chicken recipes that you make over and over, but after months and years of having the same things, sometimes you want to change it up a bit.
These simple baked chicken drumsticks are a great new option. These are easy, flavorful, and perhaps seasoned a little bit differently than you usually make them.
Is it strange that I think of the drumstick as the fun part to eat? You get to hold it in your hand!
Chicken drumsticks are always keto and paleo friendly, but this recipe is also gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and fits all of the diet requirements that you may be trying to meet (except vegetarian!). Serve yours with some Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a Fruit Pizza for dessert for a complete meal!

Chicken drumsticks, family pack (averages 12-16 drums)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. You don’t have to take this step, but it absolutely makes for an easier clean-up! Spray the aluminum foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together your seasonings.
Place the chicken drumsticks on the baking sheet and rub or paint each one with olive oil.
Rub the seasonings onto the drumsticks.
