|Fried Chicken Legs Marinated in a Soy/Hot Sauce Flour Blend|
Marinated Fried DrumsticksI suppose by now those of y'all who pop by here every so often have probably figured out what my two favorite parts of the bird are. Wings and drumsticks. Love them both, yep I sure do! Don't get me wrong - I love the rest of the chicken too - those are just my favorites, and drumsticks are a breeze to fry.
This recipe is just a basic fried chicken recipe - yeah, yeah, I know ... it looks like my regular ole Southern Fried Chicken, but I swear it's not! New recipe. New picture. Promise.
Instead of a brine, it is marinated by dipping the drumstick into a mixture of canola and soy sauce, with a bit of hot sauce, seasoned salt and garlic salt for flavor, then dredging it in flour and left to sit in the fridge for awhile. This one was actually inspired by a recipe in Mama Dip's Family Cookbook. It adds a nice, delicate flavor and okay, the truth is, it's just another excuse for chowin' down on some fried chicken!
Depending on your taste for hot sauce and soy sauce, you might want to try it the first time with a lesser amount, say 1 to 2 teaspoons and then adjust to taste the next time you try these.
Here's how to make them.
