    Something else. I thought this was absolutely amazing. I did, however, take a few of the suggestions on here. First, I mixed a little garlic to the Parmesan cheese. I also added a small amount of breadcrumbs to give it a little more body. I dredged them in flour before I soaked them in the egg and Parmesan cheese, so the coating would stick better. I baked at 200 for only about 25 - 30 minutes, because the chicken was already cooked for the most part, all I needed was the parmesan to darken. The result was absolutely amazing, the Parmesan cheese really came out, and my fiance couldn't believe how good it was.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. I am eating a piece of this piping hot chicken as I type this and it is DELICIOUS!!! I work until 11 PM and I was looking for something quick and easy to make this morning for my family to have for dinner and I found this. It is a wonderful recipe. I did make a couple of changes: I also used seasoned breadcrumbs with the Parmesan cheese. I discovered I was out of eggs so I simply coated the chicken in milk and then dredged in the cheese mix. These drumsticks came out moist and juicy on the inside and cripsy, crunchy on the outside. I thought I would need to cover it with foil, but I just kept an eye on them and they browned perfectly!! Very good Anika! I will be making this one again!  -  18 Jul 2008
