Thai Baked  Chicken Drumsticks


20 people


35 minutes



– 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter – 1/2 cup whole milk – 1/2 cup water – 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard – 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper – 1 cup all-purpose flour – 4 large eggs – 1 1/2 cups (5 oz.) grated sharp cheddar cheese – 2 stalks scallions, cut into small rounds

Step 1

Preheat the oven to oven to 450°F (232°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the butter, milk, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.

Step 2

When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and add in the flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture forms a ball and dries out slightly, about 2-3 minutes.

Step 3

Transfer the flour mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat it with the paddle attachment for 1 minute. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated into the dough before adding the next. When all the eggs are incorporated, stir in the cheese and scallions, mix well.

Step 4

Drop the batter by a scant tablespoonful onto the baking sheets, leaving 1 inch between them. Bake for 7 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F and continue to bake until the gougères are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 5

Immediately after removing from the oven, poke each puff once with a toothpick, sharp chopstick, or skewer to allow steam to escape. Serve immediately.
