Week 46: Baked Chicken Legs

The Recipe
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp pepper
chili flakes - not sure how many, but probably somewhere between 1/2-1 tsp
6 chicken drumsticks
~100g butter, melted

Heat oven to 225C.

Mix the first 6 ingredients (flour through chili) in a bowl.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in the microwave in another bowl.

Dip each drumstick into the butter and then into the flour mix to coat. Do this twice to make them extra crisp!

Place the drumsticks in an ovenproof dish and - if relevant - pour the extra butter and flour-mix over.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until done.

The Verdict
SO GOOD!!! Mind you, there was a LOT of chili, so it would probably have been too hot for some, but I absolutely loved it! And if you're not a fan of heat, you can just leave it out. But for a chili-fan like me? Absolutely yummy! One of the most successful new dishes I've made in a long time, and definitely something I'll be making again. The coating was perhaps not quite crisp enough to be completely perfect, but it came close enough, and the taste couldn't be faulted.
