Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a plastic bag, combine olive oil and lime juice with the spices. Add the chicken drumsticks and mix thoroughly with the marinade. Allow to marinate while you prepare the rest.
  3. Rinse and peel the turnip. Cut into fry-shaped sticks and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Mix paprika powder, oil, salt, pepper and pour over the turnip. Combine well.
  4. Fry the chicken in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes or until it's almost ready. Move to a lower rack and cover with aluminium foil.
  5. Place the baking tray with the turnip on a higher rack and fry for 15 minutes.
  6. Mix mayonnaise with the spices. Garnish with finely sliced scallions and fresh chili.

Tip!

Feel free to marinate the chicken a day ahead, so you just need to fry them when it's time!

If you don't have a convection oven, you can first fry the chicken drumsticks and keep them warm under aluminium foil while the turnip fries are in the oven.
