This is a really fast recipe that you can prepare in minutes whenever you have fried chicken cravings. In a large bowl, add two large eggs then add a quarter cup of water, and half a cup of hot sauce. Use a whisk to whisk all that together. The chicken will not be too hot but will have a nice little tang to it. Add in half a teaspoon of garlic powder and half a teaspoon of salt and black pepper then mix them in.

Get about 7 chicken drumsticks with the skin on in the mixture and toss them around making sure they are well coated with the mixture then cover with a plastic wrap and let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes so the juices get absorbed in the chicken. You will then need two cups of breadcrumbs in a bowl then add 2 tsp of baking powder, half a teaspoon of garlic powder, half a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of black pepper.


Mix that together and you can add any more spices that you like. You can let the chicken drumstick marinate much longer if you are not in a hurry and once they are done, grab the marinated chicken and dip each piece into the breadcrumbs mixture and make sure it is covered really well the place on a tray.

In a frying pot, you will add peanut oil, peanut oil is really good with fried chicken but you can use any other vegetable oil and make sure the temperature of the oil is 350 degrees Fahrenheit you don’t want to go any higher than that. Grab the chicken with a tong slowly lower the chiken to the hot oil and let the chicken fry, you can do this in batches just don’t overcrowd the frying pot with the chicken drumsticks.

Fry the chicken for ten minutes then remove from the oil and at this point the chicken will be really crispy from the exterior, let the excess oil drip off then place the chicken on a paper-lined plate. Let the chicken sit for a good 5 minutes before starting to eat them. This is really amazing and so easy to make at home.
