Tyler Florence's Crispy Chicken Drumsticks with Ranch Dressing
Recipe created by Tyler Florence
Servings: Serves 4
  • 8 chicken legs
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
Preheat the oven to 350° and place a roasting tray in the oven to heat up.

Wash chicken legs under cold running water. Drain and pat dry with paper towels, then toss in olive oil. In a large ziplock bag, combine seasonings and panko bread crumbs. Drop the drumsticks into the bag, and shake around to coat evenly.

Remove hot tray from oven and drizzle with a little olive oil—it will shimmer and smoke a little, as the tray should be nice and hot. Using tongs, place each drumstick on the tray, and place back in the oven.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden and chicken is cooked through.
