Direction

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2

Place chicken in a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag. Drizzle vegetable oil over the chicken. Seal the bag and massage the oil into the chicken.

3

Combine paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Mix until evenly combined. Pour spice mixture into the bag with the chicken. Seal the bag and toss to coat.

4

Transfer drumsticks to the prepared baking sheet, discarding the plastic bag.

5

Bake until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

6

For extra crispy skin, set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Broil chicken for 5 minutes.
