🍗Main Ingredients 

Chicken | I used drumsticks but you can reach for any cut of chicken. The biggest thing is adjusting the cook time to how large or small your chicken is. 

Everything But The Bagel Seasoning | This is such a delicious blend of spices. Your chicken gets coated in this seasoning so every bite is loaded with flavor. 

Buttermilk | Buttermilk will help to tenderize and keep your chicken moist. This is a great way to soak chicken for any type of baked recipe you do.

Flour & Panko | Here you have the other part of the breading. Flour and Panko pair nicely and help add even more breaded texture to your chicken legs.

🍳 How To Make

Preheat oven to 350F and then grease your casserole dish and set aside. I soaked my chicken in buttermilk for 10-15 minutes while the oven is preheating.

Now, in a bowl add your all-purpose flour and EBTB seasoning. And then in another bowl add in your buttermilk and then another bowl of breadcrumbs.

You will then take your chicken legs, and shake off excess and dredge in the seasoned flour. Next you will go back to buttermilk, and then dredge in breadcrumbs.

After your breaded chicken drumsticks are done, place in the greased casserole pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes uncovered and cook until you chicken is fully cooked.
