Ingredients 

1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
5 to 8 (24 ounces) Gold'n Plump® Chicken Drumsticks, skin removed

Instructions 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Lightly coat with cooking spray.

Stir together bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt in a shallow bowl.

Pour butter into a separate shallow bowl.

Roll chicken pieces in butter to coat. Press chicken into bread crumb mixture to coat all surfaces. (There will be some butter remaining.)

Place chicken in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle remaining butter over chicken.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the chicken is well browned and thoroughly cooked.
