Keto and low-carb drumsticks, legs & fried chicken

Sometimes, it’s fun to get your hands dirty! Drumsticks and crispy fried chicken are a great way to mix up your chicken recipes and get a little messy.

Drumsticks have a similar protein and fat content to thighs. The thigh is the upper part of the leg, and the drumstick is the lower part of the leg. Drumsticks include the bone and often the skin, hence the name “drumstick.” They also have a richer flavor due to the higher fat content.
