Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chile powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 1 package filo dough, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons honey Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a small bowl, combine the spices and mix well. Rub the chicken evenly with the spice mixture and place on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove to cool.

  • While chicken is cooling, unfold the filo, stacking the layers so the ends are aligned, and cut into 6-inch wide strips the length of the dough. Cover with a damp towel until ready to use.

  • Once chicken is cool enough to handle, make a small slit in the leg and add about 1 to 2 teaspoons of the mustard. Working with 1 sheet of filo at a time, lightly brush with butter, top with another sheet, and lightly brush with butter again. Repeat so there are 3 to 4 layers of filo evenly stacked on top of one another. Roll 1 leg inside the stacked and brushed filo, leaving the bone end of the drumstick exposed. Brush lightly with butter and repeat with remaining filo and drumsticks.

  • Return to the oven and bake until golden and crispy, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Serve immediately.
