Baked Sesame Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks (Or Wings)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Deantini

This is another recipe from Toronto Star. The original recipe called for chicken wings and with the skin left on. We believe however after we made it with the skin on that it would be better with the skin off. You can do it either way and let me know what you prefer.The flavour of the parmesan comes thru very nicely.

What a great way to make chicken drumsticks! The breading was terrific. It forms a flavorful crust with being heavy. There was enough to bread 12 drumsticks. To accommodate those who don't care for cayenne I omitted it from the mix and then sprinkled on a few of the drumsticks before baking. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Discovered during ZWT6.
