After trawling through a dozen recipes, I'm happy to say that an adaptation has recreated, if not the exact taste, the experience we were looking for! Tender, juicy, but with that essential crunchy exterior and savory spiced experience. Thankfully, we can now fulfill our Poultry Palace cravings without having to pay the entry fee for Disney!
- Preheat the oven to 425 F. Prepare a baking sheet (you may line it with foil to help contain the mess).
- Pat the drumsticks dry. (Optional) Using a sharp knife or a pair of kitchen sheers, take as much skin off the drumsticks as possible. Because the skin can shrink as the chicken bakes, I prefer to just remove it and ensure all of the drumstick is nicely coated by the batter.
- Pour the olive oil into one bowl. In another bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients thoroughly.
- Take each drumstick and coat it in the olive oil. Then dredge it thoroughly through the spice mixture. Then lay it on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
