From EatingWell:  January/February 2011

These baked chicken drumsticks are all about the contrast of crispy crunch on the outside and succulent, juicy chicken on the inside. Serve with sweet potato fries and spinach salad.

2 servings, 2 drumsticks & 2 tablespoons sauce each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Honey-Mustard Sauce

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. To prepare sauce: Combine yogurt, mustard, honey and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the sauce with the drumsticks.
