Delicious Drumsticks

Shake N’ Bake was always one of my favourite meals as a kid and this is a version that’s just like it, but tastes much better. When you make it yourself you don’t have to worry about the added sodium, additives, and preservatives, and it just tastes so much fresher and so much better. Plus, these are super easy and super quick – and drumsticks are super cheap too!


6 chicken legs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
Pinch of salt 
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 eggs 
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs 
1 tablespoon paprika 
1 tablespoon dried oregano  
1 tablespoon parsley flakes  
1 teaspoon onion salt 
1 teaspoon garlic powder 
1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
Pinch of cayenne pepper 
2 tablespoons vegetable oil  


1.) Rinse chicken legs and pat dry. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly oil a cookie sheet.

2.) Line 3 shallow bowls on the counter. To the first add all-purpose flour, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of black pepper; stir to combine. Crack the eggs into the second bowl and lightly beat with a fork. To the third bowl add: bread crumbs, paprika, oregano, parsley flakes, onion salt, garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Stir to combine.

3.) One at a time, coat the chicken legs entirely with flour, then dip and turn to entirely coat in eggs. Then place in bread crumb mixture and toss and turn to entirely coat in bread crumbs. Place on oiled cookie sheet. When all chicken legs are breaded, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.

4.) Place into preheated oven and bake for 45 – 60 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

5.) Remove from oven and let chicken rest for 5 minutes.

6.) Serve and enjoy!
