Baked Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

Day 4 of my 8 week #pantrychallenge and I’ve already strayed from the menu. But they’re more like guidelines, right? 🤣 I really wanted Buffalo Wings, but the rules of the challenge and my wallet say no. I did have some chicken drumsticks in my freezer, though! They turned out crispy and delicious! Half Buffalo Drums, half BBQ. 😋 I also made some Onion Rings to go with them. I love them beer battered, but alas, no beer in the fridge (currently accepting donations 😂) but I did have some Sprite. It worked great!! I served everything with homemade buttermilk ranch, Bloomin’ Onion Sauce and red cabbage coleslaw.

Baked Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

Servings: 3 Cooking Time: 40 Minutes

  • 2 lbs Chicken Drumsticks
  • 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Hot Sauce ( I prefer Frank’s Buffalo Sauce)
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter; melted

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Add the chicken, cornstarch and seasonings to a large bowl and toss to coat. Place in a single layer, skin side down, on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the drumsticks and continue to bake until the internal temperature reaches 165°F, the skin is crispy and the juices run clear; about 20 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken to a large bowl with the sauce and melted butter. Toss to coat and serve.
  5. Enjoy!
