Cilantro Jalapeno Chicken Drumsticks

This time of year, I crave comfort food. Between the Thanksgiving display that is already up at my local supermarket, endless ads for pumpkin spice everything, and colder weather – I want to pull on some comfy clothes, crank up the oven, and spend all day in the kitchen making the slow comfort food my grandmother made growing up.

Unfortunately, weekend days usually don’t look anything like this. Instead it’s a flurry of errands, work, and trying to prep to make the week ahead a little less chaotic. Plus as much as I love the comfort food my grandmother used to make, I crave something healthier that I can feel good about feeding to my family.

So where does that leave me? Needing a new style of comfort food – one that is quicker and healthier than the comfort food I grew up enjoying. That’s why I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken today to bring you my take on the new comfort food – one that is guilt free and easy to prepare.

It makes the perfect base for the new comfort food since Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken is free of antibiotics and has no added hormones or steroids. It’s fed a 100% vegetarian diet and is American Humane Certified. And that’s why I couldn’t wait to use it for these Baked Cilantro Jalapeno Chicken Drumsticks.

Marinated in a blend of cilantro, lime juice, and jalapeno - these chicken drumsticks are packed with flavor and are good for you. I like to think about them as an updated version of a traditional roasted chicken that cooks faster and has some extra kick from the jalapenos.


Though they're quite irresistible right out of the oven, these moist and juicy drumsticks (with a slight kick) are perfect picnic food, since they're also terrific cold or at room temperature.

Some old chicken drumstick recipes really still stand up. Breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, and oregano combined with plenty of butter make for a delicious chicken dinner.

  • They’re incredibly easy to make: you’re covering the chicken drumsticks in the coating then into the oven it goes. Because of the baking rack, the hot air is able to circulate under the drumsticks so you don’t have to flip it at the half way mark!
  • It’s a healthier option: you get crispy chicken without having to deep fry anything! You just give the chicken a spritz of olive oil then it crisps up in the oven! While I’m not going to tell you to not have fried chicken, sometimes I just want crispy chicken without having to shield myself from oil splatter while cooking!
  • You probably have everything you need already: most of these items are pantry staples for me so you probably don’t need to go shopping for the ingredients!

You’ll also need a baking rack over top of a sheet pan. I like to line my sheet pan with tinfoil for easy clean up.
