Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease two large shallow baking pans; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine egg product and milk. In a shallow dish combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika, and pepper.

Dip chicken drumsticks into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture. Arrange drumsticks in prepared baking pans, making sure pieces do not touch. Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink (180°F for drumsticks). Do not turn chicken pieces during baking. If desired, sprinkle with fresh oregano and serve with lemon wedges.
