Mock Chicken Legs
Mock Chicken is made from ground pork and ground veal that is formed onto a popsicle stick, coated with cornflake crumbs, browned and baked in the oven. We found this to be absolutely delicious!
Adapted from Jeanne Herda
Using a food processor or equivalent,
pulse the cornflakes into crumbs.
In a large bowl add one egg, 1/2 cup
of cornflake crumbs, 1/4 cup
of milk, salt and pepper.
Stir well to combine.
Add both of the ground meat
and mix well with your hands.
Place waxed paper on a large baking
sheet. Form about 1/4 cup of the meat
onto a popsicle stick, in a log form and
about 3″ long, then lay the leg on the
Cover with another sheet of waxed
paper and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together
one egg and 1/4 cup milk.
Pour the remaining cornflake crumbs
into a shallow bowl and roll each leg
into the crumbs, pressing the crumbs
into the meat, slightly, with your hands.
Pour the milk and egg mixture into
a shallow bowl. Roll the crumb
coated leg into the egg mixture.
Roll the legs back into the cornflake
crumbs a second time.
Place the legs onto a large, waxed
covered, baking sheet. Let legs
sit for 5 minutes.
Spray a large baking dish, such
as a 9″ x 13″, with cooking oil.
In a large skillet, heat about 1/4″ oil to
375 degrees. Add the legs a few at a
time, cooking for 1 minute on each
side or until golden brown.
Remove legs and place on paper
towels to remove excess oil.
Arrange the legs on a large ungreased
baking sheet. Bake in a preheated
375 degree oven or until the internal
temperature is 165 degrees and no
pink remains, about 15-20 minutes.
Serve immediately and enjoy!

Excellent post but reminds me of when I wear shorts… I’m mocked for my chicken legs lol.

This seems interesting and fun! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks it takes a bit of time to make but so worth it.
An interesting recipe. It would be good for a buffet. I wonder if you could substitute ground chicken for the veal.
It would definitely work but the taste will be different and maybe a little dryer. It is worth a try Bernadette.
These look so so delicious! I did think they were drumsticks at first!
Years ago we bought Mock Chicken Legs at a grocery store and we loved them. We loved these just as much. Thanks Ab!
