Chicken leg piece fry is a simple chicken legs recipe which is cooked on stove top by marinating the chicken drumsticks in some spices.
Chicken leg pieces are usually termed with other names like chicken drumsticks and they are usually baked or deep fried by marinating with various herbs or spices or masalas.
Here, I have made it with one of the different methods where chicken is neither deep fried nor baked but is slightly roasted in some oil.
The roasted form of chicken leg piece can be served plain or can be served as a starter recipe or can be eaten as a side dish to any of the main course recipes. Also check out some more additional chicken starters on the blog such as tandoori chicken , chicken 65 , chicken seekh kabab.
The chicken legs should always be marinated for at least an hour with aromatic spices to get the flavors infused into the chicken.
If there is little time to cook, then reduce the marination time to half an hour and marinate in refrigerator so that all the masalas get perfectly absorbed to the chicken pieces…
The flavors of the chicken pieces are absolutely restaurant made and I usually do not add too many flavors and always keep every dish very mildly spicy and yet flavorful.
