Crunchy chicken drumsticks


  • 3 1/2 cups cornflakes
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 8 large chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • steamed vegetables, to serve


  • Step 1 - Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Using your hands, gently crush cornflakes over a large bowl. Add paprika, lemon pepper and garlic salt. Stir until well combined.
  • Step 2 - Place flour and buttermilk in separate shallow dishes. Dip drumsticks, 1 at a time, in flour to coat, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk and turn to coat.
  • Step 3 - While drumsticks are still moist (this ensures crumbs cling), coat in cornflakes mixture, pressing on with fingertips.
  • Step 4 - Place on prepared tray. Spray drumsticks with oil. Roast for 40 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve with steamed vegetables.
