Spicy Coconut Chicken Drumsticks [Recipe]

In an effort to improve my cooking skills, I have decided to learn how to cook meat better. Drumsticks were on sale at Westerly (organic and free-range – score!) so I picked them up.

Spicy Coconut Chicken Drumsticks


  • 5 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar


  1. Pat the drumsticks dry with a paper towel.
  2. Heat the coconut oil over high heat, add the chicken.
  3. Sprinkle the spices and vinegar over the chicken. Turn each drumstick over a few times to distribute the flavorings.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Flip drumsticks and cook, covered, for another 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through.

So good! And the house smelled incredible. Bobby approved.

Do you like white meat or dark meat better?

I love dark meat. I always have.

  1. I used to hate dark meat – now its my favorite. So much more flavorful – and boneless skinless chicken thighs are super easy to find now.

    I like the instagram that has the 10 pictures. 😀 I downloaded that app, um, I just don’t know how to use it though! 😀

    Hugs!! 😀
