Pan Fried Drumstick With Sweet Cream Onion Sauce

Pan Fried Drumstick With Sweet Cream Onion Sauce

Cooking with chicken gives us options. Whether it’s wholly grilled or minced, cooked with greens or a dollop of butter and cream, made into a clear soup or a spicy curry, chicken rules the roost. Chicken is one meat that adapts to any flavor and requires minimum effort. No wonder it’s been popular even during 600 BC, if the Babylonian carvings have to be believed.

I often tend to experiment this beautiful white meat in different ways. And last day, when Jumpy (my 4 year old lab) and me were returning from our daily walk, I got a sudden craving for grilled chicken. As it was almost 11 in the night, and no outlet in my vicinity were open to satiate my craving, the only option was to create something on my own with the two chicken legs that were resting inside the refrigerator. While the original idea was only limited to the pan fried drumstick, the sauce was something that I added in the last minute to give it that extra yum factor. Try it, it’s simple and definitely worth the taste.
