Maple Fried Chicken


  • 8 Chicken drumsticks (or thighs, wings, etc.)

  • 4 Cups Buttermilk

  • 2 Cups Monin Maple Spice Syrup

  • 2 Tablespoons Salt

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • All-purpose flour


  1. Combine the buttermilk, syrup, salt and spices and mix well.

  2. Put the chicken into a zip-top freezer bag and pour the buttermilk mixture over, getting out as much air as possible in the process. Leave to marinate for at least an hour, preferably overnight. 

  3. Set a deep fryer to 325°F, and an oven to 350°F.

  4. Drain the chicken of the buttermilk mixture and toss into a bowl of flour to coat, shake off excess and drop each piece into the deep fryer for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

  5. Remove the chicken from the fryer and place onto a sheet tray fitted with a cooling rack and insert into the oven to finish cooking for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 165°F.
