  • For the Chicken:
    • 500g skinless chicken drumsticks
    • 1 large potato, grated
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • For the Coating:
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • For the Aromatic Water:
    • 1 medium onion, quartered
    • 1 small piece of ginger, sliced
    • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
    • 1 liter water


  1. Prepare the Aromatic Water:
    • In a large pot, combine water, onion, ginger, garlic, salt, and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes to infuse the flavors. This will be used to pre-cook the chicken drumsticks.
  2. Pre-Cook Chicken:
    • Add the chicken drumsticks to the aromatic water and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until partially cooked. Remove from water and let cool slightly.
  3. Season and Stuff Chicken:
    • Mix the grated potato with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and 2 tablespoons flour. Stir in the shredded mozzarella cheese.
    • Carefully make a slit in each drumstick and stuff with the cheesy potato mixture. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. Coat the Chicken:
    • Prepare three shallow dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with breadcrumbs.
    • Dredge each stuffed drumstick in flour, dip in beaten eggs, and then roll in breadcrumbs to coat evenly.
  5. Cooking:
    • Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Place the coated drumsticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the coating is golden and crispy.
  6. Serving:
    • Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. This dish is perfect on its own or with a side of your favorite dipping sauce.
