Chicken drumsticks are my favorite part of the chicken!
I love making healthy chicken leg recipes. They are very yummy and juicy.
Same as the chicken breasts, they are full of protein too.
But the way you prepare the chicken drumsticks, has a major effect on how healthy they’ll be!
Breaded and fried drumsticks contain significantly more fat and cholesterol than roasted drumsticks. Taking the skin off the drumstick before eating it also improves its nutrition profile. For Example:
– Chicken drumsticks are an excellent source of protein, essential amino acids and several vitamins and minerals. In other words, they are one perfect post workout meal.
