Hello everyone, I cooked 10 drumsticks a few hours ago, but I wasn't 100% satisfied. I am not a picky eater but the drumsticks were a little chewy. A friend of mine has a lot of chickens and he gave me the drumsticks. I don't know if it was my technique or the fact that the animals were 6 months old. I seared each side in a pan and then baked them at 350F for about 35-40 minutes. Oh, I also poured some chicken broth in the baking dish. The drumsticks I bought from the butcher's last week came out fine, but these ones weren't as good. A thermometer might be a helpful tool, but I recall being told never to use one. Thank you in advance.
