Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two large shallow baking pans with foil and grease; set aside. In a small bowl combine egg product and milk. In a shallow dish combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika and pepper.

  • Dip chicken drumsticks into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture. Arrange drumsticks in prepared baking pans, making sure pieces do not touch. Drizzle with melted butter.

  • Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink (180 degrees F for drumsticks). Do not turn chicken pieces during baking. If desired, sprinkle with fresh oregano and serve with lemon wedges.
