How to Make Juicy Baked Chicken?
- For this dry rub chicken recipe, I baked them in the oven at 375F for 30 minutes.
- Some chicken legs are larger and it may take 35 – 40 minutes to cook through. I always buy organic chicken, as the chicken drumsticks are smaller and the meat is juicier and more tender.
- Brush the chicken with a bit of olive oil at 20 minutes mark. This will keep the skin moist with a glistening sheen.
- Do not over cook the chicken, they are already dead! Check for doneness at 30 minutes mark. Cut a slit on the meat to check the inside of the chicken. If it’s still bloody, baked for another 5 or 10 minutes.
Dipping Sauce and Side Dishes for Baked Chicken
- To serve, dip the chicken drumsticks in bottled BBQ sauce and you will have an all-American chicken dinner.
- Steamed rice or Easy Spaghetti is great with these chicken drumsticks.
- Crispy Roasted Potatoes will be a great side.
- Green and leafy Garlic Butter Sauteed Spinach.
