  1. Preheat oven to 375 to 400 degrees F (190 to 200 degrees C).
  2. With a knife make small cuts in the sides of the chicken parts; then season chicken with salt, pepper, herbs and spices to taste.
  3. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on cookie sheet and cover chicken with more aluminum foil. Pierce foil cover with fork to make many small holes. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Then open foil cover and place onion between chicken pieces and garlic on top. Bake for another 10 minutes and serve. Enjoy!

I was excited to try this different method of cooking chicken. I have to say I'm disappointed with the results. The skin ended up really soggy, so we took it off (and therefore lost all the seasoning as well). I have to imagine that the salt and pepper amounts were a typo...I used far less than 2 tablespoons. The onion was ok, but it didn't particularly add anything to the chicken, nor was it anything special by itself. If you're looking for yummy baked onion, try Vidalia Heaven on this site. This recipe wasn't bad, it just wasn't special. On the plus side, this was a quick and easy recipe, both in prep and cleanup. If I make this again, I'll make the following changes: use skinless chicken, add some paprika for color, and add some carrots and green beans along with the onion for additional color/flavor. Thanks for the recipe.



Easily a 5 star recipe because it's soooo easy and good. I've been trying lots of different recipes for drumsticks lately and none of them have done anything for me. This one is awesome. I'll make this all the time for sure.



You really have to be hungry to eat the chicken. It can taste better if you add a DASH of salt and pepper.
