Just had a fried chicken epiphany

Last night I did a test run on my poached chicken drum sticks then cooled then floured then let rest for half an hour so the flour turned gummy then into egg yolk dip then into panko then into deep frying lard. So? B/c after I flour dredged them and the flour was 'gummy' I gently rolled the drum sticks in some fresh grated lemon zest. The zest stuck to the flour. Then into beaten egg yolks then into the panko. The result was/is AMAZING! 'Lemon Chicken'? You bet. Try it. Next time I'll definitely do the lemon zest trick but also add fine chopped fresh thyme too. I think I might be onto something. Watch out KFC! LOL
