How to Prepare Chicken Drumsticks in Pouches:

  1. Boil the potatoes. Add milk, butter, salt, and make mashed potatoes. Allow it to cool.
  2. Add chopped mushrooms and onions to the mashed potatoes. Mix well, then let the mixture cool.
  3. Finely chop the onions and mushrooms. Sauté the onions in heated vegetable oil, add the mushrooms, and cook for 10 minutes until all the liquid evaporates.
  4. Rub the drumsticks with salt and pepper. Fry them in oil until fully cooked, approximately 30 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  5. Roll out the dough into a sheet about 3 mm thick. Cut out rectangles, reserving the trimmings for later.
  6. Cut squares of 15×15 cm (6×6 inches) from the rectangles. Form a small patty from the reserved dough trimmings and place it in the center of each square to prevent the bottom from tearing.
  7. Place the filling in the center of each square, then put a drumstick on top. Gather the edges of the dough and tie them with twine, not too tight.
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place the pouches, and wrap the bone ends with foil to prevent burning.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes.
  10. Once the pouches are done, remember to remove the twine and foil before serving.
