Breaded and Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Nuvita Biscuits

Do you have a favorite way to prepare breaded drumsticks? A favorite breadcrumb coating combination? If so, please let us know about it in the comments.


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Dijon or whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped chives or green onion greens
  • Salt
  • 6 large chicken drumsticks, about 1 1/3 lbs
  • Olive oil


1 Place rack on upper third of oven. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat the bottom of a shallow roasting pan or baking sheet with a thin layer of olive oil.

2 Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Mix together the breadcrumbs and minced chives in a separate medium bowl.

3 Sprinkle each drumstick with salt. One by one, dip each drumstick in the mayonnaise mixture, turning to coat. Then dip the drumstick in the breadcrumbs mixture, turning to coat. Place the drumsticks on the prepared roasting pan.

4 Bake chicken for 20-25 minutes, until just cooked through, and juices run clear (not pink) when poked with a sharp knife.

    Season the chicken (drumsticks) with salt, pepper and dip in an egg.
    Melt about 2-3 tblspoons of butter.
    Take raw bacon, dip it in the butter and then wrap it around the chicken drumstick.
    Take a baking pan, 2 tblspoons of olive oil to the bottom of the pan to grease it up so theres no sticking. Bake chicken on 350 for 45-50 minutes.
    After done baking, pour on some more butter for extra buttery flavor.

    Should I add anything else you think?

    My mom is going on a cruise and I feel uncomfortable staying alone so my boyfriend is going to stay with me. We have been together for 4.5 years so it’s not like it is a new relationship. I am not that great of a cook and I was wondering what are some easy recipes/pre made meals that I could try?

    Feeding schedule:
    6-7am — (early morning) a 6 to 8 oz bottle
    11-12pm — brunch (waffle, pancake, eggs, etc), a cup of water and a fruit cup
    4-5pm — (dinner) popcorn chicken or hot dogs, bread and a cup of water or juice
    9-9:30pm — (bedtime) oatmeal w/ baby food mixed and a 4 oz bottle

    Now he drinks water throughout the day so I’m not too worried about that. But I don’t what him too get tired of the foods, I need different foods that I could give him. Oh and do you think that he’s being feed too much?

    Please if you’re going to give me any smart a** comment save it. Go find another way to earn two points, I need real advice from real parents and/or peds.

    Thank you!

    We are having a party in September and are looking for something other than the normal sausage rolls, cheesecake and chicken drumsticks route. Was just wondering if anyone could help us with a few imaginative but achievable ideas. Thanks x
