I love chicken drumsticks anyway...my favorite part of the chicken.....and this recipe made them even better! We Love garlic and I used three cloves. The garlic taste was really there, and baking them on a rack made them crispy all over. It's a little messy, but worth the effort@

Thank you Kim for the recipe. I'm not crazy about drumsticks (reminds me of when I had to pluck & gut chickens), I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I did everything else in the recipe as stated. I liked using the Greek yogurt. It stayed on the chicken without becoming runny. The garlic was not over powering (don't tell my husband it was in there, he's not a

garlic lover). I will make this again and was thinking about using it for fish. Any comment on that?

My family is not big on drumsticks, but since they are more affordable and our finances are stretched right now, I thought I would try this recipe. I have a very picky eater and a not so picky eater, so this was a risky recipe to try. I took the risk and this was a hit! I couldn't believe that my picky eater loved this! I will definitely make this again. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time, I may use regular yogurt since the Greek one is so expensive. Our family is also Gluten Free, so I used brown rice flour instead of the wheat flour and it worked just fine as a substitute. Really good recipe.
