Keto Oven Baked Cajun Chicken Drumsticks Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • Aluminum foil

Keto Oven Baked Cajun Chicken Drumsticks Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Using a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag place the chicken in bag. Drizzle vegetable oil over the chicken. Seal the bag and massage the oil into the chicken till all pieces are covered.
  3. Mix together paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Continue mixing until evenly combined. Pour this spice mixture into the bag with the chicken. Seal the bag and toss again to coat.
  4. After coating, transfer drumsticks to the prepared baking sheet, discarding the plastic bag.
  5. Bake the chicken until it is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. Using an instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone it should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  6. If you desire extra crispy skin. Preheat the oven's broiler. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Broil chicken for 5 minutes, turning once to sear both side.
