Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks

Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks

Diana Rattray
Serve these tasty baked chicken legs with a rice and vegetable pilaf or fries and sliced fresh tomatoes. These are easy to prepare and bake, perfect for an everyday family meal.

I used shredded Parmesan, but a good quality grated Parmesan would be delicious as well.


  • 6 to 8 chicken drumsticks, washed, skin removed
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt, pepper, and Creole seasoning or an herb seasoning blend
  • 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese


Heat oven to 375°. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or spray with cooking spray. Combine butter and lemon juice; brush chicken pieces all over. Sprinkle with the seasonings. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish; coat chicken pieces well. Arrange chicken pieces in the baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining crumbs; drizzle with any remaining butter mixture.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until browned and juices run clear when pricked with a fork.
Serves 4 to 6.

Tip: Put the breaded chicken on a rack and let it dry for about 5 minutes. This will help keep the breading from sticking to the pan or falling off the chicken legs.

Approval from the wife!, Member WifeDoesNotCook

I've been cooking drumsticks every way I could imagine. Finally, one day, my wife said, ""bake them in the oven or something."" So I gave up on the deep fryer and the grill and found this recipe. She came home after I had made this recipe. ""Oh my gosh!!!"" is what came out of her mouth. This recipe is a definite keeper! FYI: A blender is sweet for making your own bread crumbs!!!
