The Basic Fundamentals

There will be approximately one dozen chicken drumsticks within 4 pounds however you may use a variety of your favorite cuts, if desired. Fry wings as directed according to the recipe or breast & thigh pieces 15 to 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 180 degrees.

1 cup Creole mustard
2 Tbsp minced sweet onion
6 garlic cloves, pressed
4 lbs chicken drumsticks
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Vegetable oil

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; coat the chicken pieces with the mixture. Chill 1 hour. Whisk together the flour, the salt, the black pepper, the ground red pepper & the thyme in a medium bowl. Pour the oil halfway up the sides of a Dutch oven & heat to 325 degrees. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture. 

Fry the drumsticks, in batches, 10 to 12 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time or until a thermometer registers 180 degrees. Allow the temperature to return to 325 degrees between batches. Let stand on a wire rack over paper towels. Keep the chicken warm in a 200 degree oven up to 45 minutes. 

The Extra Point

Serve the chicken for a weeknight supper with steamed green beans & your favorite salad.

How To Set Up A Frying Station

Organization is key when frying large batches of food to serve guests when game day socials are in order. For additional pointers in regards to the subject, look to The Tailgaters Essential Frying Guide. In the meantime, arrange the lineup as follows.

 Set up a dredging station on your countertop or organize the food on half sheet pans on a small table if cooking outdoors. Line up the items in the order in which they will be used. Start to one side of the hot grease with the final item in the lineup being a wire rack covered in paper towels to drain the hot food. Have several pairs of tongs to use for different tasks. Use one pair to dredge raw foods & slip items into the hot oil. Use another pair of tongs to turn pieces while cooking or remove them from the grease. A spider or a large slotted spoon is a great tool for retrieving the food from the grease.
