My recipe for baked chicken legs is a keeper! With only 5 minutes of prep time, the drumsticks are coated in a spicy-sweet spice rub, arranged on a sheet pan, and baked in the oven for about 30 minutes. The skin turns out crisp and the meat is succulent and juicy. I promise they are so good everyone will lick their plate (and fingers)!

I have to confess that I’m not usually a fan of chicken legs (give me all the chicken thigh recipes, please!), but after I tested batch after batch of these drumsticks I am HOOKED.

Baked chicken drumsticks turn out with savory, crispy skin and are extra-juicy. Every bite is packed with flavor, another one of my delicious chicken recipes you can cook with ease using everyday ingredients, like simple chicken thigh marinade and crisp-skin bone-in chicken thighs.

You can use ingredients straight from your pantry to make these chicken legs.

Actually was restaurant level of flavors amazing, this tasted like the perfect spice blend without requiring uncommon ingredients or “too many” ingredients.

They look amazing! So glad you enjoyed them.

There’s only space for 5 stars but I give this 10 — one star for each drumstick I personally consumed. Lest anyone doubt my bona fides, when it comes to poultry, I am an inveterate finger-licker. The rub mellows nicely in the oven, and the crisp skin to juicy meat ratio is spot-on. Great with a beer alongside, even better with a rosé.
