1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place an oven-safe baking/cooling rack on top. This allows the chicken to cook all the way around without flipping. Set prepared pan aside.
2. Cut each raw drumstick around the base of the leg all the way down to the bone. This method results in plump, juicy chicken.
3. In a bowl combine all of the rub ingredients and mix thoroughly.
4. Working with 6 chicken legs at a time, place them into a gallon sized zip lock bag and drizzle with 2 T of the olive oil. Seal and rub the olive oil to coat the chicken.
5. Add ¼ cup of the rub to the chicken legs in the bag, seal and shake well covering the drumsticks completely with seasoning.
6. Repeat with the next 6 chicken legs and place all 12 of the chicken legs onto the prepared baking rack.
7. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 185°. * Note: This would work well for chicken wings, too! You could even slow cook them in a crock pot all day and then broil them for 5-10 minutes to get them nice and crispy! Mmm!
