Fabulous Freezer Drumsticks

The coating mix listing in this recipe is enough for 12 drumsticks, and the marinade ingredients in this recipe is for two bags of drumsticks (12 in each bag). For the next batch of drumsticks you will have to prepare another recipe of coating mix. When you are ready to make a bag of drumsticks, place them in the fridge overnight to thaw. If desired, increase the drumsticks to 48, double the amount of oil and soy sauce, an use 1 more onion, keep the garlic still at 1/4 cup, and make 4 bags of these to freeze, just remember to marinate overnight before placing in the freezer.... trust me kids of all ages love these, they are delicious!

24 chicken drumsticks, divided
2 small onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh garlic
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

3 cups fresh breadcrumbs

1/4 cup dry white wine (can use chicken broth in place of wine)
salt and black pepper

1. To prepare the drumsticks, divide 12 drumsticks between two large resealable bags.

2. In a bowl whisk together onions, oil, garlic, soy sauce and about 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
