Tater Crisp Chicken
10 drumsticks (I had 4 large drumsticks and 4 large thighs)
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups dried potato flakes
Seasonings (I just sprinkled in some of each):
paprika - a little more of this
poultry seasoning - a little more of this
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line an edged baking sheet with aluminum foil (this really saves on clean-up).
- Mix dried potato flakes with seasonings in a shallow bowl.
- Dip chicken (I removed the skin on the thighs and kept the skin on the legs) in butter then in the potato flake mixture. Shake off excess flakes (if you get too many potato flakes on your chicken it will come out soggy).
- Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 1 hour.
It came out really crisp and the seasoning was just right. We had mashed potatoes and creamed peas with our chicken. Enjoy!!
