These drumsticks get the King's treatment - first tunnel boned, then stuffed, then coated with a special seasoned coating, then deep-fried to golden perfection. This video demonstration will show you how tunnel bone the drumstick, fill it, coat it and fry it.
Ingredients
  • 8 x Chicken Drumsticks
  • Stuffing of your choice
To Coat
  • ½ Cup Tapioca flour or cornflour
  • 3 Eggs, lightly beaten
½ Cup Finely crushed cornflakes mixed with:
  • ½ All-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs Salt
  • 1 Tbs Brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs Lemon pepper
  • 1 Tbs Dried chilli flakes
Instructions
  1. To de-bone the drumstick, holding the narrow end, pull the skin back to expose the joint.
  2. Using a sharp paring knife, cut around the joint to free the meat.
  3. Grab the joint with your dish cloth and scrape the meat down the bone with the edge of your blade.
  4. Pull the flesh back onto the bone, then using the back of your cleaver, break the bone just above the narrow joint.
  5. Pull the bone out of the drumstick.
  6. You can stuff the drumstick with anything, I am using a puree of fried bacon, spinach and feta. Using your piping bag or syringe, pipe the filling into the leg until it is plumped up.
  7. If you are using a chunky filling, you can use your fingers to stuff the drumstick.
  8. Pull the skin together at the opening, and pin it closed using a toothpick.
  9. To coat the drumsticks, dredge them in the tapioca or cornflour.
  10. Dunk the drumstick in the egg making sure to wet all of the flour.
  11. Finally dredge it in the special mixture consisting of finely crushed cornflakes, flour, salt, brown sugar, lemon pepper and chilli flakes. Make sure to get a good solid coating all over.
  12. Transfer the coated drumsticks to a platter and allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  13. Fill your pan with oil to depth of 1 inch or 25mm and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  14. Carefully lower drumsticks into the oil and deep-fry them for 4 minutes per side. Remove them from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  15. Serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
