Baked chicken drumsticks

When I don’t want to overfeed my guests but I’d still serve portions enough for everyone, I prepare chicken drumsticks.

It is known that whole chicken legs can make a big portion. Family members of guests at the table often leave some leftovers on the plate because it is too much for them.

In such situations, drumsticks are the best choice. You can prepare more and if someone wants to have a second helping 🙂

When it comes to cooking time, drumsticks cook much faster than legs, so you can also save a little time.

You can serve the drumsticks with spinach potatoes as an addition. Rice, groat or sweet potatoes go just as well with them.
