Baked Chicken Drumsticks with Mustard and Garlic

An interesting dish from a French countryside came to us and just screams about refined late night dinners in cozy restaurants. Chicken is a  meat that allows improvisations, is easily cooked and can be found in cuisine of every country. But only French people could transform such trivial ingredient into a dish that served in five-star restaurants. Maybe it’s the hint of a non-urban area that urban jungle people are craving for or the language style o make everything sound seductive even if its chicken bathed in mustard.

These chicken drumsticks could be cooked in the oven, grilled on a BBQ, or on steamer but for the sake of maintaining high level Ketogenic diet we recommend the first way.

What we love the most when it comes to cooking chicken legs is that they are very easy and simple to prepare. Moreover, this cut of meat is cheaper and juicier compared to breast.

In original recipe you may read vine as one of the ingredients, vine is famous for being added in lots of French dishes mostly to keep meat soft and remain its delicate taste.

Since keto diet is a very individual thing but meant to keep you healthy and steady on your way to losing weight, it’s better to stay away from these kinds of temptations.

Mix of lime, olive oil and garlic on the other hand gives the same effect on a chicken meat as vine – keeping it juicy and fragrant.

This dish can be served with fresh leafy greens or any low carb salad.

Chicken drumsticks

Move your chicken drumsticks into a mixing bowl. Coat the chicken with the marinade and let marinate for at least 6 hours for the best result. Otherwise, you can still bake it immediately.
