You will need:
6 Chicken Drumsticks, or more if you are feeding a larger amount of people.

Next you will season the chicken drumsticks to your liking. The measurements do not have to be exact! Just use the amount that you feel is appropriate. Make sure to season both sides thoroughly. You can wear plastic gloves to handle the chicken if you prefer.
Rub in the seasoning well.
Then place the seasoned drumsticks on the parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving some space between them so they are not touching or overlapping.
Place the tray in the oven and let it cook for 40 minutes. So easy! Now you can use the time to prepare the rest of the meal or just relax!
Once done, remove from the oven. They should be nicely browned on both sides.
Use tongs to move to a serving plate. Let cool slightly and enjoy!

Oven-baked drumsticks are all time favorite in my home as a tasty dinner menu. I bake the drumsticks with organic ghee to add a creamy mouthfeel and tasty flavor in them. The high smoke point of ghee is an added advantage for ghee baking. Please try ghee for adding the ghee flavor in the chicken and you will love it for sure.
I prefer using Milkio grass-fed ghee for all my recipes.
