Cornflake Fried Chicken Drummie Recipe

Sunday, May 27, 2012

One of our favorites for fried chicken coatings, try some of our favorite dipping sauces
(see link below)

3 pounds chicken drummies, wings
1/2 cup flour
1 1/4 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked freshly ground pepper (pinch of cayenne if you like heat)
1 egg beaten
2 tablespoons water
1 1/4 cups crushed cornflakes
zip lock storage bag
1/2 cup flour
2 cups canola or vegetable oil
3 tablespoons butter

Combine 1/3 cup flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a zip lock bag. Put chicken in bag and toss to coat. Whisk together egg and water. Dip coated chicken in egg and water mixture. Combine corn flakes with 1/2 cup flour; roll chicken in the corn flake mixture.

Heat 3 tablespoons butter and 2 cups oil (I use canola oil) heated on medium high heat and test some crumbs that sizzle when you drop the crumbs into the oil.  Fry chicken pieces not crowding in hot oil until cooked and juices run clear around 35 to 45 minutes, lowering heat if coating cooks too fast, turning often.

I can almost hear the crunch from here and I'd previously saved the dipping sauces

I remember my mom making cornflake crusted chicken. I loved it, very crunchy. It reminded me of extra crispy chicken you can buy from famous food chain. Just remember once you put it in a bowl and add milk they only stay crunchy for a few minutes. :-) Just kidding.

Crunchy trumps sweet or salty and these drumettes look great. Will have to try the cornflake breading in the oven.

Ooh, I've tried making cornflaked-crusted chicken before but I Failed, it came out rather patchy! I never seem to be able to coat things evenly lol.

Yours looks delish, inspires me to try it again!
