No-fry Italian Fried Chicken
Main Cuisine: Italian Author: Finn Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 50 mins Total time: 55 mins Serves: 4
8 chicken drumsticks (bone in, skin on)
3 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp each fresh rosemary, thyme and sage, chopped
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs*
4 Tbs honey
4 Tbs apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 400.
Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix olive oil and fresh chopped herbs together in a large bowl. Add chicken drumsticks and rub olive oil mixture into the meat.
Place breadcrumbs in a medium bowl. One by one, dredge each herbed drumstick in the italian breadcrumbs, pressing the crumbs on to the meat to form a light crust.
Once all drumsticks have been coated, place the chicken in the oven and cook for 25 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix honey and apple cider vinegar together.
After 25 minutes of baking, remove the drumsticks from the oven and rotate each piece. Cook for an additional 25 minutes (could be slightly less or more, depending on the size of your pieces).
In the final 5 minutes of cooking, brush each piece of chicken with the honey and vinegar mixture.
