I'm not very familiar with cooking drumsticks, and I wound up making this twice. The first time I defrosted some frozen drumsticks and added one or two fresh ones. I made it exactly as written, using sea salt and unbleached flour. I cooked it for 15 minutes, and the meat came out kind of undone. The second time I used 7 fresh smaller drumsticks, cooked for 20 minutes, and the results were much nicer. The sauce was fairly good - nothing fantastic, but interestingly different. Next time I have drumsticks on hand, I just may try this recipe again (and maybe fiddle with it a little).
