My family loved this and it's my new favorite recipe. Easy, cheap, and really delicious. Quick to put together from ingredients I always have on hand. Halved the crumb mixture and it still made a lot. I made 10 drumsticks but half the recipe was enough for 20 drumsticks. Used homemade whole wheat breadcrumbs from my freezer (toast heels of bread, leftover buns, etc. in oven, then run through food processor and keep in the freezer). For 10 drumsticks, I used 1/2 cup butter so I'd have enough to drizzle. Made sure the bread crumb coating was pretty thick. Seasonings were perfect. Thanks so much for sharing!
