    Question Baked Chicken Drumsticks?

    I was able to get quite a few drumstick packages for .69 a pound. The problem is that they are very greasy when I bake them.

    Can you suggest a way to cook them that would make them healthier?

    I don't have a grill.

    Dark meat is going to be juicier than white meat. It's not dry like a breast. Generally drumsticks don't have much fat, unless the butcher is sloppy. You can remove any visible blobs of white fat with your fingers or a knife. Do not remove the skin, skin is not fat.

    If you parboil the chicken some of the fat will come out in the water. How to Parboil Chicken | MD-Health.com Do this and then bake it like before. This is good for thighs too, which are really fatty ( and really tasty).

    Also be sure you are baking it at high enough temperatures (375-400) and long enough (40-50) minutes. A lower temp or shorter time will not render out the fat.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Thanks.

    This was exactly what I needed to know.

    I was cooking it at 350 for an hour.
