  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. On a baking sheet, lay out your chicken drumsticks
  • Season chicken with Cajun spice, salt, pepper, minced garlic and ¼ cup of the cornflake crumbs (save the rest for later). Massage these ingredients into chicken. Feel free to sprinkle some olive oil to help coat the chicken better.
  • Bake chicken for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix your flour and water together creating a batter
  • In another large bowl, mix your remaining corn flake crumbs, olive oil and thyme together.
  • Once chicken is baked and cool to touch. Roll your drumsticks in the flour water mixture to coat them
  • Then cover each drumstick with crumbs and pack them in to make it extra crispy
  • Lay them back on the baking sheet and bake for another 35 minutes.
  • Serve with some dip and enjoy!
