Serves 4 (serving size: 2 drumsticks and 1 tablespoon sauce)

You can also serve the chicken drumsticks with light ranch dressing. Here's a quick tip for skinning drumsticks: Loosen the skin around the meaty part of the drumstick. Grab loosened skin with a paper towel, and pull toward the bone end.

How to Make It

Step 1

Using a paring knife, cut 3 slits in the meatiest portion of each drumstick. Place buttermilk, onion, garlic, and drumsticks in a large zip-top plastic bag; refrigerate 1 hour.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 3

Place a rack on a jelly-roll pan; coat the rack with cooking spray. Remove the drumsticks from the bag; discard the marinade. Sprinkle the drumsticks with pepper and salt. Combine panko, cheese, and chives in a shallow dish. Dredge each drumstick in panko mixture. Arrange drumsticks in a single layer on the rack; coat drumsticks lightly with cooking spray. Bake drumsticks at 425° for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

Step 4

Combine mayonnaise and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve sauce with chicken.
