Baked Herb & Garlic Chicken Drumsticks are a delicious, healthy addition to your weekly dinner rotation.
You can make these baked herb & garlic chicken drumsticks with or without skin, but they will come out crisper if you leave the skin on. Feel free to experiment with the herbs. In my opinion, the more the better!
This herb & garlic chicken drumsticks recipe is definitely one of the easier weeknight dinners you can make. Just rub these chicken drumsticks with some oil and herbs, bake, and you have healthy meal that everyone can enjoy!
You can also lightly spray these drumsticks with a bit of olive oil and increase the oven heat slightly for a more crispy texture. Personally, I like these just the way they are.
I save the crispy for other recipes, like my Crispy Oven Baked Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Wings. They’re perfect for game day, or even if you just love wings!
