Morsels of Life - An easy method for oven-baked rosemary drumsticks encased in crispy skin.

I needed to make some meals, but I wasn't sure what to cook since I also needed to get groceries. Fortunately, I did have some chicken drumsticks, so when I saw this recipe from Inspired Taste, I knew what I'd make. You just chop some rosemary (or used dried or another herb or seasoning), rub it all over the chicken and bake. Simple and straightforward - just the way I like. For crisper skin, place the drumsticks on a cooling rack in a baking tray. Since I don't like baking on my cooling rack, I used a roasting pan - just place each drumstick over an opening, and you'll get crispy skin all around! Give these drumsticks a try and see what you think!
