Perfect for filling your fried chicken fix without the hot, smelly grease, our Crispy Oven-fried Drumsticks is a baked fried chicken recipe with a satisfyingly crunchy texture. Coat meat with a mixture of crushed cornflakes, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper before dunking each drumstick in buttermilk and covering in a crunchy outer layer again. Bake for just 25 to 30 minutes, and you'll have a beautifully brown, crispy plate of chicken ready to serve for dinner, a picnic, or a party.
