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!
