Fried Chicken Drumstick with Eno

Don't we all love fried food? Sometimes we remind our self not to indulge too much fried food that is tasty ,fats,heaty and greasy. But not to eat fried food at all is out of question especially hubby and daughter loves fried food. As always I love to season fried chicken with garlic powder but this time on top of garlic powder I also mix the seasoning with ENO and glutionous flour. This fried chicken drumstick is really tasty and crunchy!! Ingredients:(A)

10 chicken drumstick,clean and slit the middle with sharp knife

1 tbsp ENO

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp Cayenne powder

1 tbsp ground black pepper

1 tbsp salt

*combine above seasoning with drumstick in ziploc bag for overnight in fridge*

For coating (B)

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup flour glutinous

1/2 tbsp ENO

*Mix above dry ingredients together in a plate*

1 cup whole milk + 1 egg for dipping

2 cup oil for frying


1:Pre-heat oil in fry or pot at medium low.Usually I don't use temperature gadget to check the temperature,just flick some flour ,when it's sizzling it's ready.

2:Coat seasoning chicken drumstick into dry flour mixture all over the drumstick then dip into egg mixture,again bring the drumstick to coat with flour mixture all over.

3:Slowly lay the drumstick into the hot oil,fry 2-3 pieces at one time if you using small pot or fryer,not to overcrowded or over lapping each other.Fry about 10 -15 minutes or until golden brown .Check the readiness by poking knife or chopstick into the meat,no blood is oozing out,that mean is cook. Do not fried at high heat.

4:Drain fried drumstick on paper towel before serve warm.
