“FRIED” CHICKEN

  • 5 drumsticks (I found organic free range at Trader Joe’s for $3.45)
  • 3/4 c almond meal (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
  • 1/4 c coconut flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 c coconut milk
  • 10 tbsp bacon grease  (2 tbsp per drumstick + )

Preheat oven to 350F

Lightly grease a glass baking dish with bacon grease, coconut oil or whatever works for you

Pat dry drumsticks, lightly season with salt and set aside

In large bowl, mix together the almond meal, coconut flour, salt and Old Bay seasoning

In a separate bowl, whisk both the egg white and coconut milk together 

Coat a drumstick in the egg wash, then coast with the flour mixture

Place on the baking dish and repeat with remaining drumsticks

Once all drumsticks are ready to go, place in the oven and cook for 5 minutes

Flip each drumstick and place 1 tbsp of bacon grease on top of each drumstick

Let cook for 15-20 minutes, flip again and add 1 tbsp of bacon grease on each of the remaining drumsticks and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes or until completely cooked

COMMENTS: Cook time tends to vary depending on the thickness of the chicken.  I had one plump drumstick that took a total of 45 minutes to cook, but the others were done in about 30.  

Also, I add the bacon grease once the outer coating has browned a bit because I found  doing it right off the bat tended to leave the coating soggy. Mentally I divide the drumsticks into 3 parts and place 1 tsp on each of the 1/3 (=1tbsp). If that’s confusing just plop the grease on the drumstick…you’ll be fine 😉
