    I also just love drumsticks roasted simply. I haven’t tried to cover them during part of the baking time. I wonder if that helps keep them moister and more tender. I will have to try it.

  2. They look amazing! Great way to show how easy it is to cook other parts of the chicken, besides the so popular boneless skinless chicken breast. I just made something similar a few days ago on my blog!

  3. Please double check the nutritional info – carbs = go? Thank you!
