Shake 'n Bake is popular for a reason, but this homemade version is nearly as easy and exponentially more delicious. The recipe below starts with a base of panko breadcrumbs and crushed Cheez-its for tons of texture and flavor. To this, you'll add seasonings like paprika, onion, and garlic. Arranged on a wire rack and baked at a high temperature, these chicken legs come out juicy on the inside and irresistibly crispy on the outside.
Chicken drumsticks are an easy cut that cook through relatively quickly, but if you prefer, you can also make this recipe with any other skin-on pieces of chicken. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly! Chicken should always be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit on the inside, so if you're not sure your chicken is done, consider using a probe thermometer to take the temperature of the meat on the inside.
