How to Make Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks

Serve these tasty Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks with a rice and vegetable pilaf or fries and sliced fresh tomatoes. These are easy to prepare and bake, perfect for an everyday family meal.

I used shredded Parmesan cheese in the recipe, but a good quality fresh grated Parmesan would be delicious as well.

Don’t have fine dry bread crumbs? They’re easy to make with sliced bread! See the tips and variations
