Good ol’ chicken! Who doesn’t love it? (And even more so on keto where you can enjoy that crispy, heavenly skin completely guilt-free!) Here, I took the humble drumstick up a notch and cooked them with toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds – before drizzling a little more sesame oil over and garnishing with fresh chili and coriander (< that’s ‘cilantro’ for my US readers). Toasted sesame oil delivers MASSIVE flavour and I love it! I buy mine from the Trose, but not all of them stock it, so you can find the exact one I use online here.
(NOTE: I used 8 large drumsticks in this recipe and assumed each person’s portion would be two drumsticks each. This is how the macros were calculated.)

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 0.5g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
