Oven Fried Drumsticks

Technically, this method isn't true frying, but with hot melted better and a hot oven, oven-frying does a pretty good job of replicating deep fried results.

8  chicken drumsticks, skin removed
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried thyme
2 cups cornflake cereal, crushed
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup butter, melted
Place drumsticks in a large heavy-duty plastic bag.

In bowl, mix buttermilk with garlic, salt, cumin and thyme. Pour into bag with chicken; seal and knead to mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine cereal crumbs, flour, and paprika on a plate; roll chicken in this mixture to coat.

Melt butter in jelly roll pan; add chicken, skin side down. Bake 35 minutes. Turn and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer until done.
Chef Suggestions
It's important that both the butter and the oven be hot when you add the coated drumsticks to the pan and put the pan in the oven. If the butter isn't hot enough, the chicken coating will absorb it and become soggy. If the oven isn't hot enough, the chicken will steam in the butter rather than frying and won't be crisp.
