Sparkling wine elevates a dish like fried chicken into something sublime. Choose one with a moderate level of sweetness, such as a fine Brut style Spanish Cava. Its floral aromatics and zesty citrus flavors offer a subtle complexity and cut the richness of the meat.
Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and paprika.
oven, small bowl
2 tbsp garlic powder / 2 tbsp onion powder / 2 tbsp salt / 1 tbsp pepper / 2 tbsp paprika
Carefully cut chicken legs in half at the joint. Rub them generously with spice rub, setting any excess spice rub aside.

8 chicken legs
In a large bowl, whisk together egg, water, and Tabasco. In a separate large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, and the excess spice rub.
2 large bowls, whisk
4 eggs / 60 ml water / 2 tbsp Tabasco / 200 g flour / 1 tbsp baking powder / salt
Dip chicken pieces in the egg mixture until well coated on all sides. Lightly shake to remove excess liquid. Then dredge chicken in flour mixture until a thick and even crust is formed. Repeat these steps for a thicker crust if desired.
Preheat frying oil over medium-high heat in a large, deep frying pan. The right temperature is reached when small bubbles form when a wooden spoon is held into the oil. Fry chicken pieces in batches until brown and crispy for approx. 3 – 5 min. Transfer to a lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for approx. 10 – 15 min. Remove from oven and enjoy with lemon wedges and dipping sauces of your choice!
