Baked Garlic Parmesan Drumsticks

Superbowl is approaching and the interwebs has been filled with all sorts of creative party foods.

I am a huge sucker for chicken wings. Since I can’t handle too much spicy flavor, garlic parmesan is my go-to wing flavor.

I had a bunch of drumsticks left over in my freezer, so I used those instead of wings. By baking it on a rack, you get a much crispier skin as the oil will drip off as it is released from the skin.

The drumsticks came out so crispy yet juicy that we didn’t even make a dipping sauce. The garlic flavor was just right, although I may use fresh garlic next time.

This can be either served as a snack or a meal (SO and I ended up having 3 drumsticks each for dinner).
