      Another great recipe. I served these with Spicy Potato Bumps as suggested and had a great meal. I liked the results that cooking them on a rack produced. They stay crisp all over. I used skinless chicken drumsticks.

      I made these for my husband for dinner and he enjoyed them. I did have to cook them longer because the legs were so big! Thanks for posting!

      Really liked this! I suggest a few changes. I would use the egg as a previous reviewer suggested to get a little more stickiness and a thicker breading. This is a matter of preference. I would like a little more flavor and may use more cheese than breadcrumbs next time (making them less skinny, again a preference- not what the recipe is designed toward!). Also, I cooked mine at 400, 20 mins each side so that the skin on the legs could crispen. Thanks for posting!
