Crispy Fiesta Drumsticks

I came up with this recipe because drumsticks are always on sale at my local supermarket. This is not only a cheaper & meatier alternative to deep-fried hot wings, because it is baked, it is healthier too.

1 dozen chicken drumsticks
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1 envelope taco seasoning (or low-salt taco seasoning)
1 cup cornflake crumbs
1/4 cup prepared ranch dressing mixed with 1 2 teaspoons (up to 1 tablespoon) hot sauce
1 cup buttermilk

Whisk dressing mixture & buttermilk together in a deep bowl – add chicken legs. Let marinate in fridge for approximately 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375F

Combine seasoning & crumbs in a bag or wide, shallow dish
Add chicken a piece or 2 at a time & toss to coat well.

Place coated chicken legs on baking sheet & drizzle with margarine.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes.

Makes 6 – 12 appetize servings
