These are no ordinary chicken drumsticks! Wait till everybody sees how fancy these drumsticks look when you serve them like a crown roast, with stuffing in the center. Wow! Yummy and great-looking, too!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 (7-ounce) package crumbled herb-seasoned stuffing mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cubed herb-seasoned stuffing mix
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 14 chicken drumsticks (about 4 pounds)

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and celery; saute 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Remove from heat and add stuffing mixes and chicken broth. Stir until all stuffing is moistened; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine vegetable oil, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well then brush evenly over drumsticks.
  5. Spoon prepared stuffing mixture into a ball in center of prepared baking dish. Stand drumsticks thick-side down around stuffing, pressing them into the sides of the stuffing.
  6. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until no pink remains in chicken and juices run clear.

Do I have to cover it before putting it in the oven?

No, you do not have to cover the Drumstick Crown Roast. Enjoy! :)

This dish looks very impressive and is great for times when there are lots of kiddos... I made this plus a whole chicken also to feed 5 adults and 7 kids. All of the drumsticks were gone!
