Crushed cornflakes are the secret ingredient to give chicken drumsticks that deep "fried" feel. Your little ones will gobble these up by the bucket.
3 cups cornflakes
1/4 cup honey, divided
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
10 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 napa cabbage, shredded, about 8 cups
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
Crush cornflakes with your hands in a medium bowl until finely crumbled.
Whisk egg with 2 tbsp honey and Dijon in another medium bowl.
Pat drumsticks dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt. Coat each drumstick with egg mixture, then press into cornflake crumbs to completely cover. Place coated chicken on prepared sheet.
Bake in centre of oven until golden brown, 30 to 35 min. 6. Whisk oil with lemon juice, remaining 2 tbsp honey and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Season with fresh pepper. Add napa cabbage and toss to combine.
