Crispy Asian Baked Chicken Drumsticks – an easy meal! Crispy chicken drumsticks are tossed with a killer 5-minute asian sauce – incredibly delicious.
Crispy chicken. It always seems so elusive unless you stick it in the frying pan with gobs of oil.
But it’s really quite simple if you know a trick or two – the most important being heat. High heat coupled with oil. Just like frying…only not.
I adore this Crispy Asian Chicken Drumsticks recipe. It’s ALWAYS what I make when chicken drumsticks are on sale – I just picked up 5 pounds for $5! That meant I could either double the recipe or make them twice – I chose to make them twice. This recipe is SO EASY and the baked chicken drumsticks are SO CRISPY fresh out of the oven that it was worth the small amount of extra time.
The sauce is on the sweet side but you can add more spice by adding more Sriracha. I add more…a lot more! But I’m a heat fiend and I know that most people like more of a balance. If serving a crowd, just keep the Sriracha bottle close by so fiends like me can easily get their hands on it.
This could easily be turned into an asian wing appetizer, too! Just sub wings for the drumsticks and leave everything else the same (you’ll want to reduce baking time but that’s the only change. Crispy chicken wings, crispy chicken drumsticks, you could also do baked crispy chicken thighs – whatever you like best!
