Step 1 Optional: For a lighter option, you can remove the skin from the drumstick before baking. The easiest way is to use a paper towel to grip the chicken drumstick and gently pull off the skin.

Step 2 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and a wire rack if cooking with the skin-on. Mix together all of the spices. Brush the drumsticks with oil and then coat with spice mixture.
