  • Summary

    Who doesn't like crispy chicken drumsticks? I got inspired by this recipe from Nagi of Recipe Tin Eats who used a similar technique to make crispy oven-baked chicken wings. Apart from using baking powder, Nagi also baked the chicken wings at two temperatures: first on low to render the fat and then on high to crisp them up. I'm not sure if this will work for the drumsticks but my guess would be that this may make them too dry.

    Ingredients

    • 10 chicken drumsticks (~ 1.2 kg/ 2.6 lbs), weight includes bones, will yield about 50% meat
    • 1/4 cup ghee or butter, you can make your own ghee (56/ 2 oz)
    • 1 tbsp paprika
    • 2 tsp gluten-free baking powder or use a mixture of 1/2 tsp baking soda + 1 tsp cream of tartar
    • 1 tsp salt (I like pink Himalayan salt)
    • Optionally: Serve with Easy Keto Ranch Dressing
