Eating a meal with your hands always feels like an exciting and novel experience -- even if it means way more napkins and a whole lot of cleanup ahead. Remember when you were a kid, and the whole silverware deal just wasn’t your style? Well, we’re here to help you bring that mentality back.

One of the most fun things to eat with you hands is a chicken drumstick. There’s something about wielding a large drumstick and sinking your teeth into it that makes you feel like a caveman, or a lord in the middle ages (don’t pretend you haven’t imagined that). Though some drumstick meals are easier eaten with a fork and knife, feel free to use your hands -- we won't judge. Here are a few drumstick-friendly recipes so that you can get in touch with your wild side.
