Preparation of drumsticks in a pouch:

Step 1: knead the dough.

Sift the wheat flour and sprinkle it with a slide. At the top, make a small hole and place the yeast there, sprinkling them with sugar and pouring a little milk. Let the yeast begin to act for several minutes, and then add the egg yolk, remaining milk, butter and spices. Knead a uniform and fairly tight dough.
After kneading, leave the dough covered somewhere in a warm place so that it rises. And get down to the stuffing yourself.

Step 2: prepare the filling.

Peel and dice the boiled potatoes.
Peel the onion and cut into small pieces.
Cut the garlic and squeeze through a special press.

Fry the onion in oil until soft, then add it to the potatoes and mash together with a crush. Add mashed garlic, salt and other specified spices.
Fry chicken legs in oil as well until a slight blush on all sides. In total, it will take you about frying chicken 10-15 minutes. You do not need to cook it, just fry it.

Step 3: pack the chicken legs in bags.

When the dough rises, divide it into two equal parts and roll it into rather thin circles.
Put on each slice of dough a slice of smoked ham, then put the mashed potatoes and put the chicken leg in it.
Fold up the free edges of the dough to make it look like a bag, and tie them with baking parchment. Do not tie it very tightly, leave a small gap in the neck of the bag so that hot air comes out of it.

Step 4: bake the drumstick in the bag.

Cover the baking tray with parchment and place your drumsticks in it.
Send this beauty warmed up 170-180 degrees oven on 40-45 minutes.
Serve the finished bags immediately so that the dish is not scorching hot, let it stand for about 10 minutes on the plate.

Step 5: serve the drumstick in the pouch.

The drumstick in the pouch looks very appetizing. That is why I consider this dish festive. However, it is prepared simply and from easily available ingredients, so you can delight your homemade chicken cooked according to this recipe without any special reason. Try to cook the main thing at least once, and then everything will turn out quicker and faster, and maybe add something on your own.
Enjoy your meal!
