To start, you want to mash your potatoes. This is a great way to use up any leftovers you have in the fridge. If not, you can boil them on the stove or make Instant Pot mashed potatoes. If using the stove, you can either peel before or after. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes can easily be pierced with a knife. Then mash.

Step 1

Remove the skin from the drumsticks and season with paprika, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, and salt and pepper.

Step 2

Preheat oil in the skillet, add the seasoned drumsticks in, and brown the chicken on all sides until golden brown. Then, add water and cook chicken until it cooks thru, flipping once.

Step 3

Transfer chicken to a large plate and remove the meat off of the bone. Place it in a mixing bowl along with potatoes and the remainder of the seasoning. Mix everything to combine.

Step 4

Next, using wet hands grab a handful of the mixture and flatten it out. Add cheese in the middle and place the chicken drumstick bone over the top. Fold the mixture to form a drumstick. Freeze for 30 minutes -1 hour.

Step 5

Set up a dredging station. One bowl will have the flour, one will have the whisked eggs, and one with the breadcrumbs.

Step 6

Reheat the skillet with the cooking oil until it’s hot again. While it’s heating up, carefully, roll the drumsticks in the flour, egg wash, and last, the breadcrumbs.

Step 7

Fry the drumsticks in the hot skillet until golden color on the outside, turning few times.Eat while warm. Enjoy!
