  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon [easyazon_link identifier="B00EIB2ZPU" locale="US" tag="nomrec-20" localize="y"]baking powder[/easyazon_link]
  • ½ tablespoon kosher salt
Garlic Mayo Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons [easyazon_link identifier="B0000WKU8K" locale="US" tag="nomrec-20"]Japanese mayonnaise[/easyazon_link]
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Put the chicken drumsticks in a large mixing bowl and mix well with baking powder and kosher salt.
  2. Rest the drumsticks in fridge for at least 1 hour (recommend 8 hours). The longer you rest, the crispier the skin will become as the baking powder will have more time to do the magic.
  3. Preheat oven to 450F.
  4. Put the chicken drumsticks onto a rack and into oven for 55 minutes to 1 hour. Flip the drumsticks once every 20 minutes.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the garlic mayo sauce ingredients together.
  6. Remove the drumsticks from oven and ensure the internal temperature is 165F.
  7. Toss the drumsticks with the garlic mayo sauce in a large mixing bowl while the drumsticks are still piping hot.
  8. Serve Immediately.
If you don't have Japanese mayo, you may substitute it with 3 tablespoons of regular mayo + 1 teaspoon honey.
