Now, we know this is a big claim, but… we think we may have found the most satisfying TikTok food hack yet.

Sure – the hack for cutting and preparing mangos is nice, and this way of flipping food in a frying pan is so much easier than regular food-flipping. But we genuinely think this way of cooking chicken drumsticks in the oven beats both these hacks - hands down.

So, yeah, this is a hack for cooking chicken drumsticks, and we really think you’re going to like it. You know how when you cook chicken drumsticks in the oven, you usually pop a marinade on them and lay them on a baking tray to cook? Well, have you ever thought about hanging them from the oven rack while cooking them? Allow us to explain…

In this TikTok from @fascinating42, you can see the marinated chicken drumsticks being wedged in between the wires of an oven rack before the whole thing is slotted back into the oven. But the key here is to have a tray of vegetables (potato wedges are a great shout too) placed in the oven underneath the drumsticks, so that, as everything’s cooking, the delicious juices from the drumsticks fall onto the veggies giving them bags of flavour. Genius, eh?

We know we get overexcited about stuff sometimes, but we genuinely love this hack as it’s so satisfying how the chicken drumsticks slot into the oven rack.

Right? RIGHT?!
