“A sweet-chili sauce and honey mustard marinade creates a great twist on an old favorite. The crunch of panko bread crumbs makes a great combo.”

  1. Whisk together the honey mustard, chili sauce, eggs, and sea salt in a bowl. Place the chicken drumsticks in a large, sealable plastic bag; pour the marinade over the chicken and seal the bag. Allow to chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place the bread crumbs in the bottom of a wide dish; dredge the marinated chicken in the bread crumbs to coat. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, deep pan over medium-high heat. Gently lie the breaded chicken into the hot oil until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes, turning once if needed to get even coloring; transfer to a baking sheet.
  4. Cook the chicken legs in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

These were absolutely fantastic! My husband and his friend were well on their way to eating every single drumstick, but I managed to snag one for myself, and I'm glad I did! I am truly a beginning cook, just graduated from boxed macaroni and cheese, and they were so easy to make! The only problem I had was that a lot of the bread crumb coating came off when I tried turning them over in the oil. Any suggestions?

This. Was. Incredible. If I could give this more than five stars, I totally would. I made sure my drumsticks were dry before coating and I made sure to shake the excess coating off before dropping in the oil. I added some pepper for taste and I mixed some chili sauce and honey mustard to go on the side of the drumsticks. These went so fast I had no time to take pictures. Even my kids inhaled their portion and asked for more!



This was really good! I used thighs instead of drumsticks, but followed the recipe exactly other than that. Thanks for a unique new way to make fried chicken!
