Chicken Drumstick Recipes ... for diabetics and non-diabetics !

We receive a variety of emails, and one came in the other day asking for chicken drumstick recipes that are suitable for diabetics. So, I'm happy to oblige. The recipes* below are actually suitable for diabetics and non-diabetics...

Chicken's many plus points - its versatility, as well as the ease and speed with which it can be cooked - make it one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium. For many of us chicken drumsticks, or chicken legs, are the most perfect part of a chicken - they are protein-rich, succulent and very juicy. I also find that are usually very reasonably priced ...

Below you will find three Chicken Drumstick recipes. All are low carb, and suitable for diabetics and non diabetics. These recipes can be changed to use chicken thighs if preferred.

It is such a versatile meat. Growing up, chicken was a luxury, served only at high days and holidays.

Chicken should preferably come from a local butcher or farm shop. Much better results than supermarket stuff don't you think?
