KBC…Kentucky Baked Chicken

imageimageI know it’s been a while since I’ve posted… I was bogged down with work. However, now it’s the holidays I am back with an awesome finger-licking recipe!

If you love KFC and are a major fan of fried chicken like me, you will definitely enjoy making this healthier version which has all the flavour but less of the grease which comes with frying.

Through experimenting, I found a way to make deliciously flavoured chicken drumsticks with a tasty crispy coating. The prep can be a little messy, but the results are soooo worth it 😋.

Ingredients:

Prep for the chicken before coating:

8 chicken drumsticks

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 1/2 tablespoons of paprika

1 1/2 tablespoons of chicken seasoning

1/2 tablespoon of white pepper

For the chicken coating:

100g breadcrumbs

2 eggs

30g plain flour

2 tablespoons of paprika

1 1/2 tablespoons of chicken seasoning

1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder

2 tablespoons of mixed herbs

1/2 tablespoon white pepper

Method:

1.Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6 and grease a large baking tray with butter.

2. In a separate dish, place the chicken and cover in paprika, chicken seasoning, garlic powder and pepper. Ensure all drumsticks are fully covered by rubbing the seasoning into the meat.

3.Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk and put the dry ingredients listed for the coating into a sealable bag.

4. Take a chicken drumstick and dip the whole leg into the whisked egg, ensure that all sides are coated in egg.

5. Carefully put the egg coated drumstick into the coating mixture. Seal the bag and shake it until the drumstick is completely covered in breadcrumbs. Take it out, being careful not to brush off the coating and place on the buttered tray.

6. Repeat the process until all drumsticks are coated and then cook in the oven for 2 hours. Ensure that the meat under the coating is cooked thoroughly before serving. Enjoy!!!
