    Made as written and these were fall off of the bone tender alright! These were great and I don't think the bbq sauce was even necessary.  -  22 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was a bit skeptical at first because the seasonings and flour had just been sprinkled on. While I was prepping, I thought 'I've gotta get my hands dirty, these babies look like they need a good rub!' But opted to follow directions precisely, leaving out the poultry seasoning and subbing that with a dash of sage. I also just drizzled sunflower oil over the drumsticks, as the cooking spray I had probably would have blasted the flour and seasonings right off of the chicken and all over the walls. I was astonished at how well they turned out! I let them bake covered for 3 hours and uncovered for 20 minutes since the drumsticks I used were still a bit frosty after leaving them thawing in the fridge for 2 and 1/2 days. The excess flour in the pan made me wonder, but the juice from the chicken cooked with it, turning it into a nice broth. I'll most definitely be using this recipe again. Thank you for posting this!  -  01 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made it just as the recipe said. I think it needs to be kicked up a bit but was good as it was  -  28 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
