These drumsticks are super easy to make and delicious. This recipe is a great way to use up the last bit of corn flakes hanging around. I used the 1/2 tsp of red pepper and didn’t find them spicy at all but if you are making for kids or don’t like spicy, use the 1/4 tsp or leave it out completely.
3 cups corn flakes cereal, crushed
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 to 12 tsp cayenne pepper (can leave out if wanted)
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cup buttermilk
8 chicken drumsticks
Combine the first five ingredients and place in a ziplock bag.
Pour the buttermilk into a bowl. Dip each drumstick in the buttermilk and then place in the ziplock and shake to coat completely. Place on a foil-lined, lightly greased cookie sheet. Repeat with all the drumsticks. If there is any coating left, sprinkle over the drumsticks on the pan.
Bake at 425º for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is done and no pink remains.
