Spicy Chicken Drumsticks

Sorry about the mishap... this was not supposed to post until I was done with it.  My brain is on overload these days and I'm just scatterbrained.
With having a houseful of people (6 adults and one toddler) I'm looking out for cheap meals.  doesn't hurt if they are quick and easy either!  I had some chicken drumsticks in the freezer and did a mishmash of two different recipes. Overall it was pretty tasty.  Its a lot like hot wings only on a bigger scale.

Spicy Chicken Drumsticks
one package, thawed chicken drumsticks (not the flash frozen type) which had fourteen drumsticks in it.
1/2 cup hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning

Place chicken drumsticks  into a food storage bag and pour over hot sauce.  Let Marinade for at least one hour or overnight if you desire.

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.  Line a cooking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil. Place 1/4 cup of butter onto sheet and place in oven to melt.
In a large bowl, combine the flour salt, pepper and spices.  Blend together completely.  Roll drumsticks into flour/spice mixture to coat.  Place chicken onto prepared pan.
Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, turn over and bake 20 minutes more.  Chicken should be starting to pull away from bone. So you may have to adapt your time somewhat.
