If You’re A Fan Of Fried Chicken, You’ll Love This Healthier Alternative!! These Oven Baked Chicken Legs Are Breaded In A Light, Crispy Coating That’s Full Of Delicious Seasonings, And Then BAKED Instead Of Fried!

The best part is that it tastes just like Kentucky Fried Chicken but they’re not fried at all – they’re BAKED!! I was surprised that they tasted so good for being baked, but they were, which means I’ll feel less guilty when I have a few.  Not only did these chicken legs taste amazing, but they were easy to throw together! When a recipe tastes this good and is this easy, it’s a winner in my book. If you’re a chicken lover like us, you’ll definitely enjoy this simple and easy oven baked drumsticks recipe.


Start off melting a little bit of butter in your 9×13 pan by placing it in the oven. While the butter is melting, mix together the ingredients for the breading. The breading is SO delicious, and it only requires these few ingredients!

  • Bisquick mix
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Coat each drumstick in the mixture, and then place in the pan with the melted butter. Once they’re all breaded and in the pan, spray lightly with the spray butter and then place in the oven. Bake at 450° for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven, flip each chicken leg, spray with butter once more, and then bake for an additional 15-25 minutes, until they’re as crispy as you want them to be.

These chicken legs are sooooo crispy and DELICIOUS! We just had this recipe again for the second time this month which means it’s definitely a KEEPER.
