"These lemon marinated, flour/egg coated and deep-fried drumsticks are allowed to 'bloom' in the oil like roses in springtime! These drumsticks look very nice served with this special chile garlic sauce, and they are so tasty!"

This was very difficult to make. It took too much time. What added to the difficulty is the fact that my chicken was not completely defrosted. I also was confused with the directions when it came to the sauce. I wasn't sure if it was to be part of the marinade or a dipping sauce for afterwards.
A messy recipe. The lemon marinate is a good tip because it makes the drumsticks very moist and tender. I used the juice of two lemons. 2 tablespoons is not enough.
The Chicken came out yummy, but there was WAY too much mess and work for the results. Also my picky 5 year old wouldn't eat it because she didn't like the smell.
