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
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper,
  • 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.

How to Properly Store Chicken

How long can cooked chicken be stored in a refrigerator or freezer?

That relies upon several conditions, but chicken, once cooked, should be refrigerated within 2 hours. To maximize the shelf life of cooked chicken for protection and exceptional quality, refrigerate the chicken in shallow bins or wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The cooked chicken will remain for three to four days in the fridge.

To further increase the shelf life of a cooked chicken, freeze it. Store the cooked chicken in plastic storage bins or heavy ziplock freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.

How long does cooked chicken remain withinside the freezer?

Properly stored, it'll preserve the quality of the chicken for approximately four months; however, it will continue to be edible past that time.
The freezer time given is for the best quality of the meat. Cooked chicken that is continuously frozen will preserve indefinitely.

For the best freezer results, look at getting a vacuum sealer like this one: Get a Vacuum Sealer Here on Amazon

How long does cooked chicken remain after being frozen and thawed? 

Cooked chicken that properly thaws out in the refrigerator will be edible for three to four days. Cooked chicken thawed in the microwave or in bloodless has no other shelf life and should be consumed immediately.

How long does cooked chicken store at room temperature?

Bacteria develop hastily at temperatures between 40°F and 140°F; cooked chicken must be discarded if left out for more than two hours at improper temperatures.

How to know if a cooked chicken has good bad?

The most common manner is to smell and examine the chicken. Most symptoms of bad chicken include:

  • bitter scent
  • slimy texture
