Four chicken drumsticks, skin on and bone-in.

A favorite on our farm because these drumsticks make such easy meals, cooked up with crispy skin and tasty dark meat. After we’re done, we save all the leg bones in a bag in the freezer until we have enough to make chicken bone broth.

Ingredients
  

Drumstick Marinade

  • 8 pasture raised chicken drumsticks
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest (plus a little extra for garnishing)
  • 1 Tbsp minced thyme (plus a little extra for garnishing)
  • 1 tsp sea salt or flake salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Dredging Flour

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole grain flour
  • 2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 quart rendered fat for frying

Instructions
 

  • Combine all the marinade ingredients in a deep bowl that can submerge the chicken drumsticks. Marinate for 3-4 hours in the fridge, turning once or twice to ensure the chicken marinates evenly.
  • When ready to fry the chicken, bring the drumsticks out to warm up a little- about 30 minutes before cooking. Choose a thick-bottomed skillet or dutch oven for frying. Heat the rendered fat to 350 degrees using a thermometer to maintain the temperature.
  • Dip each drumstick in the seasoned flour and coat fully. Once all drumsticks are dredged, gently lower into the hot fat and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees.
  • Drain the drumsticks on paper towels and season with thyme, lemon zest and salt and enjoy!
