Haven't tried this in a while. You may not want to use butter because of the calories but it does add to the flavor!

WOW cannot understand why this has not been reviewed before now. I used drumsticks (legs) - 10 in total as I wanted some cold for a picnic the next day, 2 of us ate 4 of them with dinner with Debbwl's recipe #376107 on the side. I used the breadcrumbs to which I added some basil, lemon thyme and oregano (which had been fresh but which I dried in the microwave) and added to the breadcrumbs. For 10 large drumsticks I used about 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter melted in a shallow bowl in the microwave. Didn't use salt but rarely add extra salt. Baked at 200C fan forced oven for 1 hour. Now besides enjoying my 2 drumsticks thoroughly lovely and juicy but the DM after eating her side declared herself full but I conjoled her that I needed her opinion on the chicken could she please have at least just a mouthful well the mouthful turned into 2 drumsticks devoured - a winner. Thank you marisk, made for Bargain Basement.
