Ingredients You Need

Place wire rack on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spray the rack with cooking spray or brush with oil. Preheat oven to 425° F.


In a large plate with edges, add coconut flakes, almond meal or flour, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir with a fork to combine and set aside.


In another bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork and set aside.


Take a drumstick, dip in egg mixture, dredge in coating, dip in egg again and finally dredge in coating one last time. Place on the wire rack and repeat with remaining 9 chicken drumsticks.


Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the juices run clear when chicken is poked with a knife or fork. Serve immediately for the best crispy healthy chicken in the world!



Leftover fried chicken should be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Unfortunately, the chicken will not be quite as “crispy” when reheated.
