Ingredients:
Chicken Drumsticks - 8
Oil preferably Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 tbsp
Spicy Brown Mustard - 1 tbsp
Spanish Paprika or Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper - 1 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Garlic and Herb Seasoning - 1 1/2 tsp

How to bake Buffalo style Chicken:
  • In a mixing bowl or a resealable plastic bag, add oil, vinegar, brown mustard, paprika (for color), cayenne pepper (for heat), black pepper, garlic and herb seasoning and salt.  Mix all the ingredients well.  I used chicken drumsticks with skin, discard the skin for lesser calories.  Coat the chicken drumsticks in this marinade well.  Let the chicken marinate for 4 - 5 hours or overnight.  Get creative and feel free to add your favorite seasonings as well.
  • Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F.  Use a baking tray with a mesh.  Mix the chicken drumsticks again and place them on the mesh.  Bake them uncovered for 30 - 40 minutes till chicken skin turns crisp.  
  • Buffalo Sauce: Microwave butter in a microwave safe bowl for about a minute. Add orange zest (grated orange peel) and Buffalo sauce to the melted butter. Mix well and coat the baked drumsticks well.  Add more buffalo sauce and/or orange zest if you like.
  • Bake the chicken drumsticks at 375 degrees F for another 10 minutes. Enjoy hot spicy Chicken Drumsticks with lemon.
