Cajun Chicken Drumsticks

Total Time: 40 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 10 drumsticks


  • 10 Wholesome Farms Direct Source-Verified chicken drumsticks
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Stir together all the spices. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  4. Place drumsticks on the prepared tray.
  5. Sprinkle the drumsticks with the spices, covering all sides.
  6. Leave the side with the most meat and skin facing up.
  7. Put a dab of about 1/2 tablespoon butter on the top of each drumstick, on the part that is most meaty. The butter will melt all over the meat and skin, keeping the meat juicy, and making the skin crispy.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven.
