  • This is a great recipe. My husband tends to be a bit picky sometimes. So, I wasn't sure would like it. But, he loved it! Definitely would cook this again. - 2/14/14

  • This looks fab, but I think the nutritional information is a bit off. There's no way an entire drumstick with the skin intact is 22 calories. - 1/28/13

  • I only had bran flakes and whole wheat flour. I tried it and it was very good, giving it a sweeter nuttier flavor. Yum. - 10/1/11

  • This was really good! I will make it again. I made it exactly as written. just want to point out...using walmart frozen drumsticks it equaled one drumstick one serving. - 1/31/11

  • We made this with 2 chicken legs and 2 thighs. The breading was very good but did not stay on chicken well. Was very tender and would recommend this recipe. - 7/14/10

  • This was great. My husband loved it and he is not into this lo-cal cooking at all. I took the skin off mine and left it on his and I loved it as well - a nice change. I paired one drumstick with broccoli, salad and a baked potato and it was wonderful and filling!! - 9/9/09

  • This was really good. I made the legs for the kids and used boneless skinless breasts for the adults. I added paprika for a little extra flavor. My kids asked for seconds! It really tasted like fried chicken even though it was really baked. I will definitely be keeping this recipe as a go to. - 8/3/09
