Active Time:  20 Minutes
Total Time:  45 Minutes
  4 servings, 2 drumsticks & 2 tablespoons sauce
These baked chicken drumsticks are crispy-crunchy outside and succulent and juicy inside. Serve with sweet potato fries and spinach salad.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the sauce (Step 4) for up to 3 days.
For Crispy Baked Drumsticks with Honey-Mustard Sauce:
2/3 cup  fine dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)
1/2 teaspoon  paprika
1/2 teaspoon  onion powder
1/2 teaspoon   salt
5 teaspoons   canola oil
1   large egg
8   chicken drumsticks (about 2 pounds total), skin removed, trimmed
For Honey-Mustard Sauce:
1/4 cup  nonfat plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style
2 tablespoons   Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons   honey
Freshly ground pepper  to taste

Note: To make your own breadcrumbs, trim crusts from whole-wheat bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until very fine. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 250°F until dry, about 10 to 15 minutes. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs.
Crispy Baked Drumsticks with Honey-Mustard Sauce Recipe at
Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it on a large rimmed baking sheet.

Mix breadcrumbs, paprika, onion powder and salt in a shallow dish. Drizzle with oil and mash with a fork until the oil is thoroughly incorporated. Lightly beat egg with a fork in another shallow dish. Dip the drumsticks into the egg, then press into the breading mixture until evenly coated on both sides. (Discard any remaining mixture and/or egg). Place the chicken on the prepared rack.

Bake the chicken until golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a drumstick without touching bone registers 165°F, 25 to 30 minutes.

To prepare sauce: Combine yogurt, mustard, honey and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the sauce with the drumsticks.
