Very nice drumsticks!! love the taco taste and the pepper sauce in the buttermilk gave them a very nice twang with a little bite. I used skinless drumsticks with all visable fat removed. Worked very well and the timing was right on, cooked perfectly in 45 minutes. Thanks for sharing an easy, tasty chicken recipe.
