"Chicken Leg" Shaped Crispy Treats on boardJuly 6th is National Fried Chicken Day. I have a group of friends who are fried chicken lovers that like to make chicken on this day. I thought it would be fun to make a sweet treat version that looked like fried chicken. This is a fun and simple recipe for all ages. No baking necessary!
