This recipe is a neat idea- just add a few common ingredients to drumsticks and you have a unique dish. I used a some leftover homemade salsa instead of taco sauce, so the chicken ended up very spicy... which I enjoyed. These turned out as crispy as they possibly could without being deep-fried. Served with a mild gazpacho to balance out the spiciness.

  • 23 cup corn chips, finely crushed
