crispy Chicken

crispy chickenWho doesn’t love Crispy Chicken pieces? These are such a winner especially with the kids. In these ones I’ve used the same principle as I did for my Crispy Sardine Sprats to make these crispy chicken pieces gluten, dairy, egg and nut-free so they are VERY allergen friendly.

Recipe Type: GF, DF, RSF, Paleo

Serves 1
Time  30 min


  • 1/4 C EVOO
  • 4 raw chicken drumsticks, or other cuts
  • 1/2 C quinoa flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: other herbs and spices as desired (chilli flakes, cumin, turmeric etc.)

To serve: veggie chips of choice, fresh salad, homemade sugar-free tomato sauce or passata.


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  2. Place the EVOO into a small bowl.
  3. Place the quinoa flakes into a separate shallow dish with salt pepper and herbs if using.
  4. One at a time, take the drumsticks and dip/drench in the EVOO then dip in/cover with the quinoa flakes, being sure to coat the entire drumstick in flakes.
  5. Place drumsticks on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 20 mins or until crispy and golden.
  6. Serve with your favourite veggie chips (I like eggplant and pumpkin) and fresh salad.
