4 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 orange, grated peel
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup finely crushed crackers or corn or toritlla chips
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
2 lbs chicken drumsticks


In a shallow dish, combine the peel, juice, and butter.
In a second dish, combine crushed crackers, paprika, and seasoned salt.
Dip the chicken in the butter mixture; then coat it with cracker mixture.
Arrange Chicken on a rack, in a shallow baking pan; loosely cover with aluminum foil.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 40 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until chicken is tender.

Notes: Use any kind of cracker crumbs; sesame, wheat or bacon - or substitute crushed regular or barbecued tortilla or corn chips. Cooking the chicken pieces on a rack makes baked chicken with oranges crunchy on all sides.
