Garlic Ranch Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Garlic Ranch Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Ingredients

For ranch dressing

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

For chicken drumsticks

  • 4 lb chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1.5 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • 3 tablespoons ranch seasonings

Ingredients

  1. Place all the ranch recipe ingredients in a jar with a lid. Cover and shake until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 500F with the baking rack in the middle. Line a 9″x13″ rimmed pan or baking dish with parchment paper or foil for easier cleanup. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of ranch seasoning, 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon black ground pepper, 1.5 tablespoon garlic powder, and 4 tablespoons of oil.
  4. Pat dry the chicken drumsticks with paper towels. Sprinkle salt.
  5. Combine the chicken drumsticks and seasoning together in a large ziplock bag or a bowl and massage the seasoning into the meat. Massage it well to coat. Sprinkle more salt.
  6. Arrange the chicken drumsticks on a baking sheet or baking dish. Now, place the pan into the preheated oven and bake at 500F the first 15 minutes and then 375F for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven, place a foil on top to prevent the top from burning and place it back to the oven and cook it more for 30 min. 
  8. Check your chicken if it’s done. When the meat is easily torn off the chicken with a fork and the internal temperature registers at 165F the chicken drumsticks are done baking.
  9. Remove from the oven, then transfer the chicken thighs to a serving plate and allow to rest for about 10 minutes before serving. 
  10. Garnish with parsley or cilantro if you wish.
  11. Serve while hot.
