Crispy Fried Chicken Drumsticks

This fried chicken home made recipe is easy to make and tasty to eat. I love Kentucky Fried Chicken but I prefer to make my own version of it as I find the taste of KFC had changed from what it used to be. I don't know if you have noticed but I find KFC chicken is a lot salty and the usual taste has changed. At least if you make your own, you can add or take out the ingredients you like or you don't like. You can also vary the ingredients to make it more interesting.

Tangy, Crispy and Crunchy Chicken Drumstick recipe

With this recipe, you can use chicken thighs and chicken wings as well or if you prefer it without bones or you can use the chicken breasts as well. For me , I would be happy to accompany this recipe with plain boiled rice with sautéed pak choi and a fruit for afters or maybe ice cream if I am feeling naughty. I will use ketcup or sweet chilli sauce for dipping the chicken.
