  2. Cut around the tip of the smaller end of the drumette to release the skin and meat. Pull the meat down toward the larger end with your finger, cut through any tendons with a knife if necessary. The meat should end up in a sack at the end of the bone, with the skin inside and the meat outside.

  3. For the wingette, cut through tendons in the smaller and bigger ends. Same with drumette, pull the meat down toward the larger end. The meat should end up in a sack at the end of the bone, with the skin inside and the meat outside. Take out the smaller bone and discard.

  6. Take the chicken drumlets from the refrigerator. Coat the chicken drumlets respectively with flour mixture, egg mixture, and flour mixture.

  7. Then fry the chicken drumlets at 350°F/170°C until golden brown and crispy. Set aside and let cool on a cooling rack.
