Easy Baked Cajun Chicken Drumsticks

Baked Cajun Chicken Drumsticks - easy to make and packed with just the right amount of flavor.

This Baked Cajun Chicken Drumstick recipe is packed with just the right amount of flavor and will make you drool.

I’m so excited about today’s blog post! Why? Because this recipe involves one of my favorite seasonings of all time! *does a little dance when no one is looking around*

Here’s a little secret of mine – I absolutely love Cajun Fries. I couldn’t stop ordering them from one of my favorite restaurants every other weekend. But then, I realized that it’s not the fries that I’m addicted to but instead the lovely Cajun seasoning *duh silly me*

So recently I made these delicious Baked Cajun Chicken Drumsticks… because you see Cajun seasoning makes everything taste better! They are not only healthy since they are baked but are really easy too.

You might even say – This is so simple – why even write about it? But you see, I fell in love with them so much that I couldn’t pass it up. The key is getting the chicken crispy and juicy. Thighs have more fat so you don’t have to worry about them drying out while baking, unlike chicken breasts. And don’t forget the beautiful aroma of the chicken that spreads all over the house while it’s getting baked. 

I get my Cajun seasoning from the grocery store but for anyone who wants to make it at home, check out this recipe.
