Chicken Drumsticks Recipe
The best way to prepare chicken drumsticks is with a good recipe. For example, if you want to make a classic fried chicken dinner, then use only one type of oil (such as olive or peanut), and fry them until they are golden brown. If you want to make fried chicken wings, then add some spices such as garlic powder and chili flakes before frying them. You could even try making fried chicken nuggets.
For other types of chicken dishes, you might want to experiment with different seasonings and sauces. Try using soy sauce instead of fish sauce; it will give your dish a new flavor! Also, try adding some vegetables like carrots, celery sticks, mushrooms or broccoli florets into the mix. These ingredients will not only enhance the taste but also improve its texture and color.

How to Bake Chicken Drumsticks
To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, wash the chicken drumsticks and remove their skin. If you want, you can also cook the skin separately to make fried chicken skin. Next, make a marinade for the drumsticks by whisking together some oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl. Put the drumsticks in this bowl and swish them around so that they are all coated in the mixture.
Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and put the drumsticks on this rack. This will allow the excess oil to drip off of them, which will prevent them from becoming too greasy when they are cooked. Finally, put the baking sheet with the drumsticks into the oven and bake them for at least an hour.
Fried Chicken Drumstick Recipes
Once you have baked the drumsticks, you can prepare them for eating. The simplest way to do this is to just eat them as they are. If you want, you could dip them in some honey mustard or barbecue sauce for extra flavor. However, the true test of a true fried chicken connoisseur is to see if they can successfully fry the drumsticks in just the right amount of oil.
To do this, you will need a heavy skillet and about 1/2 inch of canola oil. Heat the oil on medium heat for at least five minutes until it is hot. Test to see if the oil is hot enough by dropping a small drop of water into the oil. If it sizzles, then the oil is hot enough. Next, lower the drumstick into the oil using tongs and leave it to cook for at least six minutes.
Turn the drumstick over and cook the other side for five minutes, then turn it back to its original position and cook for a final two minutes. When it is golden brown, you can take it out of the oil and serve it.
Easy BBQ Drumstick Recipes
BBQ drumsticks are just regular chicken drumsticks that have been cooked in barbeque sauce. This can be done in an oven, a skillet, or even a slow cooker. To start, you should cook the drumsticks using your chosen method: either baking them, frying them, or slow cooking them. When they are almost finished cooking, slather them in barbeque sauce and put them back in to finish cooking. This process can take up to an hour depending on what method you use.
Alternatively, you can cook the drumsticks using the basic baking method, outlined above, and then put the drumsticks in a slow cooker filled with barbeque sauce. This will allow the drumsticks to stew in the sauce while they cook, creating a more integrated flavor. Cook them on low for five to seven hours or on high for two to three hours.
To serve, put the drumsticks on a plate and drizzle extra barbeque sauce over the top. Dip some fries in additional barbeque sauce and enjoy!
Spicy Drumstick Recipes
If you want to add some spice to your chicken drumstick recipes, you can do so in a number of ways. To start, you can mix a hot sauce, such as Tabasco, into the marinade before you put the drumsticks in the oven or fry them. You can also mix a hot BBQ sauce into your barbeque sauce to give it an extra kick. If you want to take it one step further, you can mix in some chopped jalapenos into the marinade or sauce.
If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can try making your own hot sauce at home. This will give you the ability to control how hot the final product is and allow you to make as little or as much as you want. To start, you will need to gather some ingredients: 8 ounces of chopped tomatoes, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, 2 tablespoons of sugar,1 tablespoon salt, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium until it comes to a simmer. Stir occasionally and remove from heat when the mixture reaches the consistency you want.
Turn the heat up to high and bring to a rapid boil. Let it bubble for one minute, then remove it from heat. Let it cool, then put it in the fridge to cool completely.
To use, whisk 3 tablespoons of the sauce into 1 cup of BBQ sauce or other sauce of your choice. This can be used as a dipping sauce or to brush on the chicken while it cooks. If you want more heat, add more hot sauce or cayenne pepper to taste.
These are just some simple drumstick recipes to try out. Whether you prefer them spicy or plain, baked or fried, there are plenty of different ways you can prepare this delicious meat!
