Crispy chicken legs with a mustard crust

Crispy chicken legs with a mustard crust | In Whirl of Inspiration

Well I suppose I am gone for a month now and the truth is I missed you guys. However this getaway was such a must if I wanted to concentrate in the one and unique event of my graduation. So now I'm a biologist with a degree and I'm bananas about this, plus I have some brilliant plans for the near future. But, first I will share with you the most simple recipe (like all delicious recipes of this world) for crispy chicken legs.

Crispy chicken legs with a mustard crust by In Whirl of Inspiration


:: 12-15 legs (or wings) of chicken

:: mustard

:: flour breaded

:: salt, pepper


For the sauce:

:: vinegar

:: honey

:: black pepper


Boil the chicken legs (or wings) for 10'-15' depending on their size. Then drain the water, remove the skin and rinse the foams.

Let them cool and cover them with mustard and allow them to marinate. Then flip them in the breadcrumbs and fry them in hot oil. I recommend you to fry them in a small diameter pot, to avoid the hot oil splashing. For the dipping mix honey and vinegar (play with the proportions to find the analogy that you like) and serve while they are hot and crispy.

Bon appetite!
