This week the recipe was chosen by The Big Guy. We were on a short road trip and I was reading the January issue of Food Network Magazine when he looked over and saw the picture of 'Nacho Chicken Drumsticks' and replied...OH we HAVE to try those.
Sundays seem to be the days that I have the most time to experiment so yesterday I tried the recipe and neither of us was disappointed, especially not him. :-)
Nacho Chicken Drumsticks from food network magazine
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 9 oz bag tortilla chips finely crushed ( I used about 5 cups)
4 large eggs
12 medium chicken drumsticks
Vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 Cups grated cheddar, jack or muenster cheese ( I used cheddar)
Fresh salsa, guacamole and sliced jalapenos for topping
Pre heat oven to 425 degrees. Fill a large pan with 3 inches of vegetable oil and heat over medium high heat until a deep fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. Working in batches, fry the drumsticks until golden and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Week 1 was a success. It isn't something we will eat often but I see it being requested during football season.
