INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce, (alternatively you can use Soy Sauce)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

HOW TO MAKE BAKED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.

Step 2: To a large freezer bag, add the ingredients. Seal the bag to close and shake until the chicken is evenly coated with the spices.

Step 3: Keep the chicken in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes up to 1 to 2 hours (for best results).

Step 4: On a baking sheet, arrange the chicken. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking. Once the internal temperature of the chicken reached 165 degrees, then the chicken is done.

Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and serve the chicken right away garnished with some parsley. Enjoy!
