Oven-Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Updated: Mar 14, 2022

When our daughter is going through a flare, foods that are easy on the stomach are a must. We usually fine-tune her diet to allow only the purest, simplest foods to eat without any added ingredients.

As IBD sufferers know, nutrition is important during a flare. So, protein is critical as it provides essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to help the body recover. Lauren is not a big meat eater, so finding a meat dish for her to eat is a challenge. She does love chicken - sometimes. For her to eat it, it has to be flavorful, juicy, and tender - but isn't that what we all want in our protein?

These drumsticks are easy to make and essentially no-fail. I try to buy organic when I can, because we do notice a difference in taste and flavor.


  • 1 package of drumsticks (I think they usually come in packs of 6 or 12; it doesn't matter how many you get for this recipe)

  • Olive oil

  • Sea salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 370F. Rinse and pat the drumsticks dry with paper towels.

  • Put the drumsticks on a baking rack over an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet.

  • Brush olive oil over both sides of the drumsticks. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

  • Bake for 40 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

My entire family loves these. They are so rich in flavor. When Lauren sees her family enjoying the food I make her, it really pleases her and encourages her to eat as well.
