Cook’s Oven-Baked Drumsticks – “Primalfied”

Primalfy: to make something non-primal… primal.

Earlier this week I decided to primalfy a chicken recipe from Cook’s Illustrated.  Cook’s Illustrated is one of my favorite cooking magazines.  They offer so many fabulous recipes that have been tested and tweaked to perfection…along with scientific explanations and detailed descriptions of the methods to make them.  Unfortunately these recipes are often not primal-friendly… hence the need to primalfy them.

The original recipe from Cook’s Illustrated was for Baked Drumsticks and called for all-purpose flour (evil), butter (not quite evil… but I avoid dairy), and garlic powder (I was all out).  What’s a girl to do?

I swapped the all-purpose flour for almond meal, the butter for coconut oil, and the garlic powder for onion powder and the results… were amazing. 

Cook’s Baked Drumsticks  – “Primalfied”

  • ½ cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix almond meal, salt, onion powder, paprika, and pepper in a bowl.  In a separate bowl: pour coconut oil over drumsticks and make sure each one is well coated.  Then roll the chicken drumsticks in the almond meal mixture until they are well coated.  Arrange in an ungreased pan and bake for 50 minutes.
