    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 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)


    This recipe came out perfect. I made a couple of changes based on what I had on hand and not from dissatisfaction with the recipe. - Pan spray: I mixed all of the dry ingredients together in olive oil, applying the mixture with a basting/pastry brush. - Flour: I crushed boxed stuffing cubes in the blender and sprinkled those on instead. I followed all other instructions to the letter. Be careful of chicken juice if you are using a shallower pan like I did. The drumsticks came out great, very tender and tasty!  -  25 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
