Chicken legs can be quite easy to prepare for a homemade dish and don’t require any professional experience to be cooked. What makes this ingredient perfect for our recipe is that it gives us a feeling of satiety and prevents us from eating unnecessary snacks between meals

This part of the chicken is also a good source of protein, a handful of other vitamins, and amino acids. What is good about chicken is that has no carbohydrates at all and offers 47% of your daily protein needs that keeps muscles strong and 49% of your daily selenium needs that help maintain your immunity and thyroid health.

As a spice, I used Sichuan peppercorns. Peppers are an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential oils. It contributes to the digestion power of our body as it increases the enzymes and gastric juice in the gut. Sichuan peppercorn also has a unique aroma and makes a perfect addition to any meat. 

For a better flavor, I will add some chilli and garlic powder and some grated ginger. You will only need about 40 minutes of preparation before serving this meal to your family. You can also add any other spice, but remember to stick with keto-approved ones
