I absolutely adore golden crisp baked chicken drumsticks with corn flakes and this recipe, which includes coconut and chili flakes, was featured in a magazine in Europe in spring 2014.
The chicken drumsticks are perfectly cooked and the chili and coconut give it a slight Indian touch to the baked chicken drumsticks with corn flakes.
Some dishes that I made up in the last few years did take me a while to create, others on the hand where instant ideas that were well received.
I save you some trouble as well by coming up with the best that my small “kitchen” has to offer, keeping in mind as well to use fresh locally available ingredients and developing simple time-saving dishes, because we are all busy bees in this world, right?
The Baked chicken drumsticks with corn flakes coconut and chili flakes, however, came to life rather fast and thank god for it!
The husband was in a rather bored mood the day when I made them the first time.
The rains were in full swing and it was quite dull outside.
As you know, my husband isn’t much of a food lover, it’s more of a necessity for him, so food doesn’t really lift up his spirits.
I presented him the baked chicken drumsticks with cornflakes and then I heard…
“Hey, you should make that more often and the sauce too, they are both killers!”
At that moment my heart quietly jumped up and the tiny smile appeared on my face while thinking “Got him!”.
It’s always a success if I can satisfy his taste preferences.
The Coconut gives the coating a lovely neat texture and it goes well with the crushed corn flakes and chili flakes.
In fact, if you like Indian food, you will love these golden baked chicken drumstick with cornflakes, coconut and chili flakes.
