Who doesn't like crispy chicken drumsticks? I got inspired by this recipe from Nagi of Recipe Tin Eats who used a similar technique to make crispy oven-baked chicken wings.
Apart from using baking powder, Nagi also baked the chicken wings at two temperatures: first on low to render the fat and then on high to crisp them up. I'm not sure if this will work for the drumsticks but my guess would be that this may make them too dry.
Below are tips for the best results:
- Remove any moisture from the drumsticks by pat drying with a paper towel
- Press butter or ghee under the skin of each drumstick
- Use gluten-free baking powder mixed in a spice rub for extra crispiness
- Use a rack to allow all the juices drip so the drumsticks remain crispy
