General Tsao Chicken Drumstick Sheet Pan Dinner

General Tso Chicken Legs Sheet Pan

I am so inspired by how well these skinless, panko crusted, baked drumsticks came out that I’d love us to do tons of riffs on this by just seasoning the panko differently (shawarma spice, everything spice etc…).  Try it and let me know what you think.
