Chicken Drumsticks – Deep Fried

Need a quick chicken drumsticks recipe on Sundays in a span of 15 minutes – Here is the one.

All of us wondered on KFC chicken’s secret spices. We can see a huge number of social media posts regarding the secret herbs of KFC chicken. Though we have the list in our hand, we can’t collect all those herbs just for this one recipe, that too we are going to make it once in a while. A shortcut to get very similar taste of KFC chicken at home is by using Oregano herb mix that we get while we buy Pizza. Two or three small sachets of Oregano sprinkler will give us KFC chicken at our home.

For getting KFC chicken at home, all we need is some 10 minutes of preparation time and few packets of oregano sprinkler. A very quick recipe. We can marinate the chicken in lemon, salt, and chilli powder but that is purely optional. One of my trials on KFC drumstick chicken gave me a fusion recipe of KFC chicken and Indian Fried Chicken. Sharing here really really spicy – deep fried chicken drumsticks recipe.
