1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with foil; generously coat foil with cooking spray. Remove skin from chicken and discard.
2. Pour cereal into a gallon sized, zip top plastic bag; seal bag. Using a rolling pin, crush cereal. Add wheat germ, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper to bag, seal the bag again, and shake to combine. Roll down sides of bag; you'll use it to for breading chicken. Pour salad dressing into a shallow bowl.
3. Working with one drumstick at a time, hold chicken from the end of the bone and coat with salad dressing. Wipe away any excess with a spoon or spatula. Then roll chicken in crushed cereal mixture, pressing coating onto chicken. Place coated drumstick on prepared baking sheet. Continue with remaining drumsticks.
4. Bake chicken for 45 minutes or until cooked through (170 degrees F). Drumsticks will be golden and crispy. Serve immediately, with seasoned green beans or a salad and mashed potatoes.
