Easy Baked Chicken Drumsticks

I’m lucky enough to have my Mom living about 30 minutes away from me now.  I see her fairly often, and she comes and spends the night at my house occasionally.  On one such occasion, she made us dinner.  She whipped up these Easy Baked Chicken Drumsticks in nothing flat.  Simple crumbs with salt and pepper, a quick dunk in butter, a roll in the crumbs and into the oven they went.  They came out so crisp and buttery and perfect.
