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!

Here’s a step-by-step for what you’re in for:

      Thanks, Lois! This is one of my FAVORITE recipes and I’m thrilled you enjoyed it! It’s one of my lesser-made recipes (at least I assume it is because my other recipes seem to get more comments and questions) so I love that you both made it and liked it as much as I do. Thanks! :)

    These are delicious!! I had made them once before while trolling recipes. I found this one, made it once and both hubby and I loved it!! I have searched for a while trying to find this recipe again. Seeing as I stocked up with all ingredients because we wanted it to be a weekly addition. Thrilled I found the recipe again!!! Everyone reading this should try this recipe once. Easy and different than the usual.
