FAQ’S

How Do I Prevent The Drumsticks From Sticking To The Foil?

To prevent sticking, ensure the drumsticks are well-coated in olive oil before placing them on the foil-lined tray. This creates a protective layer and enhances the crispy texture.

How Can I Prevent The Drumsticks From Becoming Too Salty?

To control saltiness, taste the seasoning mix before coating. Adjust the salt quantity according to your preference, ensuring a balanced and not overly salty flavor.

Can I Omit The Baking Powder From The Coating?

While the baking powder contributes to crispiness, you can omit it for a slightly different texture. The drumsticks will still be flavorful but with a different mouthfeel.

How Can I Make The Drumsticks Extra Crispy?

To achieve extra crispiness, extend the baking time slightly or finish the drumsticks under the broiler for the last few minutes. This ensures a golden and exceptionally crispy exterior.
