    I am thinking of making crumbed chicken drumsticks but i’m not a very good cook. Can I leave the frozen chicken out overnight? How long do i put the chicken in the oven for and at what temperature, Celsius please.
    I also want to give some chicken to my 11 month old son. Am I able to cook the chicken in the oven to the point where its not bad for him, I hope you can help me.

    I want to defrost 4 chicken drumsticks in the microwave and it asks me for the weight of the food in gr.
    I don’t know what to put for all, but I’m thinking of setting it at 500gr.

    What do you think a normal sized chicken drumstick weighs ?

    Can someone tell me how to cook chicken drumsticks in the oven? I am not a cook and am embarrassed to ask how to do this. I don’t have a lot of ingredients to make this fancy either so just advice on temperature, time, etc. is helpful

    I recently picked up a few pounds of large chicken drumsticks from Whole Foods and I’m planning on serving them tonight. They have a dry rub made with garlic and herbs already on them, so I’m unsure how to prepare them.

    Should I broil them? Bake – low and slow?

    Any advice would be great and much appreciated!

    I am making teriyaki chicken drumsticks/wings for dinner. But I can’t decide what side dishes to have with them. Some kind of veggies or a pasta salad?

    When I cook chicken drumsticks / legs, I sometimes find a few in a batch that still have some blood (along the bone) even after being cooked for a long time!
    Is there a way to make sure to drain all blood out before cooking them?
