Crusted Drumsticks – Recipe


Eating these drums felt so guilty, but alas they were diet friendly! These are a great meal to serve to non-dieters, also a great family friendly meal!


  • about 12 drumsticks( a.k.a. chicken legs) skins removed for the dieters, skins on for the indulgers
  • 2-3 oz light balsamic vinaigrette

  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dry parsley
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 2 1-gallon Ziploc bags
  1. Place the chicken and balsamic dressing in a ziplock bag, close, remove excess air, and toss until evenly coated
  2. Let marinade for 30+ minutes, flipping the bag occasionally
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F

  1. Interesting! I’ve seen recipes that use cornflakes, but never oat bran. Looks healthy and delicious!
