Pancake Drumsticks



Curious? I bought a bunch of drumsticks to throw into the crockpot over the weekend and completely forgot. I had to come up with something for dinner quickly using these birdies. We’ve all heard of the oven-version of fried chicken, so I thought I’d test out a unique version on the family. The end result was absolutely incredible fried chicken that my husband and kids begged me to make for them again… soon!



I found a recipe via www.bettycrocker.com using Bisquick and ranch dressing, but I didn’t have any of those ingredients in the house. I used Aunt Jemima’s pancake mix (leftover from a recent camping trip) and mixed up what you would expect in ranch. Thank you Betty!


What You Will Need:
12 chicken drumsticks
1 C pancake mix
1 egg
1 T water
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp dried dill weed
½ tsp basil
½ tsp parsley
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp garlic salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
non-stick cooking spray

1) Preheat oven to 425°F.
2) Mix dry ingredients in one shallow pie plate.
3) Whisk water and egg in another shallow pie plate.
4) Spray 9x13 deep baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
5) Coat drumsticks in egg mixture and then pancake mixture and transfer to baking pan.
6) Cook in oven for 25 minutes. Turn onto other side and bake another 10 minutes or until fully cooked.
7) Serve with salad.

That looks awesome! I wouldn't have thought of pancake mix, but it makes completely delicious sense!

That sounds so interesting - like fish tacos - two other things I never thought would go together, but I really love those!

We used to make oven fried chicken similar to that while I was growing up. We would just flour and the spices, toss them in a plastic bag with the chicken and shake it. The chicken would actually come out nice and crispy.

My husband tells me he doesn't need KFC ever again... this is better! Glad you like oven-fried too!
