If you are unhappy with your favourite brand’s policies or practices, you may be tempted to stop buying their products. However, this can be hard to do if you love their taste and quality. Instead of boycotting them completely, why not try making a brand-inspired recipe at home? You can use ingredients that are more ethical, sustainable, or affordable, and still enjoy the flavours you crave. Here we have an example of how to recreate KFC’s popular Chicken Drumsticks in your kitchen.

So if you love KFC chicken, you will love this recipe too. This is a homemade version of the famous fried chicken that is crispy, juicy and flavorful. You can make it easily at home with simple ingredients and enjoy it with your family and friends.

Step 1: Marinate the chicken

Wash and pat dry the chicken drumsticks. Make small cuts on them with a knife. In a bowl, add vinegar and salt and mix well. Add the chicken drumsticks and toss to coat them well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or two hours for better results.

Step 2: Prepare the coating flour mixture

In a large bowl, add refined flour, garlic powder, chicken powder, mustard powder, paprika powder, white pepper powder, crushed black pepper, dried oregano leaves, thyme and salt. Mix well and keep aside.

Step 3: Prepare the dipping mixture

In another bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Keep aside.

Step 4: Coat and fry the chicken drumsticks

Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Take out the marinated chicken from the fridge and let it come to room temperature. Dip each drumstick in the egg-milk mixture and then coat it with the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour and carefully lower it into the hot oil. Fry for about 15 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towels and serve hot or warm.
