17 Recipes That Turn the Humble Chicken Drumstick Into Something Special
It's my belief that the (meat-eating) world is split into two groups of people: those who will turn their nose up at anything except boneless white meat, and those who'll gnaw away at wings, thighs, and drumsticks until there's nothing left but bone. As someone who falls firmly into the second camp, I am always looking for new ways to cook tasty, affordable, but often-overlooked cuts like the humble chicken drumstick. These recipes prove that there's life in the old bird yet, and you don't have to dredge drumsticks in flour and seasoning and deep fry them to get loads of flavor. Put those boring chicken breasts down, and whip up something a bit more rustic for dinner. All these recipes bring out the best of bone-in cuts like drumsticks, thighs, and wings for an affordable family dinner that'll disappear in no time.
