kfc original recipe chicken drumstick, we only know that KFC prepares chicken drumstick 12 ingredients : spices and 100% flour, but the rest of the ingredients used have always been top secret.

The secret of this chicken drumstickis the overnight marinating in buttermilk: the buttermilk, which you can find at the supermarket or make at home , softens the meat of the chicken and gives it a slightly sour taste. Furthermore, the buttermilk “purifies” it of any bacteria and that is why once used to marinate the chicken it must be thrown away because it could be contaminated and it is not possible to recycle it. The marinating in buttermilk will ensure that in breading and cooking, the chicken will be soft and tasty.

Among the most interesting variants (similar to the one you see in the photo) is the covering with corn flakes (those for breakfast): just pass the chicken in the cornflakes instead of the flour, for a very crunchy chicken with a unique flavor.
