My Crispy Sweet Heat Chicken Legs are such a fun, simple meal. Drumsticks are so cheap these days (I got 5 lbs for under $4!) that this is totally budget-friendly.
This recipe is crispy, sweet and has a little kick. The crispiness comes from unsweetened coconut flakes, which was something I’d never done before, but it worked out. I didn’t notice a coconut flavor at all, it took on the flavor of the spices. 🙂
My husband doesn’t like coconut, so I omitted that for his happiness and he thought the coating was great on its own. The egg gave the chicken skin so much crispness and it made it turn a pretty golden color.
We had this with a salad and mashed cauliflower.
This meal is frugal, yet tastes gourmet. If you don’t have chicken legs on hand, feel free to sub chicken breasts!
