      Love that I don't have to worry about whether the chicken is cooked. Good flavor. The nutrition info is WAY off. A teaspoon of salt has 2400 mg sodium so there is no way a single leg could have 1084 mg (a chicken leg with skin has less than 200 mg sodium, so I know the increase isn't that). Each drumstick prolly has between 250-500 mg sodium depending on how much breading we pack on.

      I have gone from never making fried chicken to using this recipe and loving it. I always thought it was a pain because its hard to tell when the chicken is done on the inside. With this, you know its done from boiling, it just needs a good golden-fried skin. The double dip flour method lends to this.
