Ingredients

2 x 1kg packs chicken drumsticks

150g bread (weighed without crusts, preferable 2-3 days old)

100g Asda Cornflakes

100g sesame seeds

100g Parmesan, finely grated

1 level tbsp paprika

2 level tsp dry mustard powder

100g butter

4 free-range eggs

75g plain flour

Method

1
Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Remove most of the skin from the drumsticks but don't worry if it doesn't all come off. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
2
Whizz the bread in a processor to make crumbs. Put the cornflakes in a freezer bag and crush gently with a rolling pin, making sure that they don't turn to powder. Put the crushed cornflakes in a dish with the breadcrumbs, sesame seeds, Parmesan, paprika and mustard and mix together.
3
Melt the butter and put in another dish. Add the eggs and beat the fork until evenly mixed.
4
Put the flour on a plate and season. Dip the drumsticks in the flour so they're coated all over. Tap off any excess flour.
5
Dip the drumsticks in the egg mixture so they're completely coated, then roll them in crumbs, pressing them on firmly.
6
Put the drumsticks on a baking tray, leaving a gap between each one. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Serve with carrot salad.
