I originally found this recipe online and these drumsticks are easy to make and are really, really yummy. They're also really moist thanks to the yogurt and the meat just falls off the bone! I like to use vanilla yogurt for taste but plain yogurt is good too! I also make a large amount and save some for later because they also taste great cold.
Also, I don't use the entire container of yogurt but I dip the chicken into the yogurt container to coat it so most gets used up and there's usually some of the breadcrumb/cheese mixture left over as well. I only use what I need. Eventually I'll figure out exactly how much I need and stop having things left over to go to waste but I haven't done that yet.
1 cup plain, toasted breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan and romano cheese mix
14 chicken drumsticks
9 oz Original 99% Fat Free Vanilla yogurt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning, onion and garlic powder in a deep dish.
3. Dip each drumstick into the yogurt container (or put yogurt into bowl and dip from there).
4. Roll the yogurt covered chicken drumsticks in the breadcrumb mixture and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cook for 45- 55 minutes or until the juices run clear when pierced by a fork.
