Grilled Drumsticks


Keto does not have to be a complicated way of eating. I have not yet  begun”counting macros”, but have been cooking the foods, losing weight, and simply trying to understand the ins and outs of it all.

Tonight’s plate is compliments of Kristie Sullivan (ranch dressing and broccoli salad) and my own experiment in a chicken rub. While we used the ranch dressing as a dip, these could have stood on their own.


Chicken spices

1 part kosher salt

1 part garlic powder

1 part onion powder
1 part dried thyme
1 part smoked paprika
1/4 part cayenne
Red pepper flakes to taste
I don’t have much luck getting a good spice cover from shaking them in a bag or stirring them in a bowl. I brushed avocado oil on each drumstick and sprinkled the spice mixture over them. Then let it marinate for a few hours prior to grilling. They came out crispy and full of flavor.
