Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°C (175°C).
  2. Mix together a marinade of jerk seasoning, salt and sour cream.
  3. Pour into a big plastic bag with the drumsticks. Do not remove the skin!
  4. Shake thoroughly and let marinate for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the drumsticks from the bag. Throw away the bag with the marinade.
  6. Put the drumsticks in a new, clean bag.
  7. Blend pork rinds into fine crumbs in a blender. Add coconut flakes and blend for a few more seconds.
  8. Pour the crumbs into the bag and shake vigorously.
  9. Place the drumsticks in a greased baking dish, preferably on a rack.
  10. Pour the oil on top. Bake in oven for 40–45 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  11. Turn the drumsticks after half the time. If the breading has already turned a nice color, lower the heat. The coconut flakes are heat sensitive.
  12. Meanwhile, make your cole slaw. Shred the cabbage finely with a sharp knife, mandolin or a food processor.
  13. Place the cabbage in a bowl and add salt, pepper and mayonnaise. Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes.

    I just made this and used seseme seeds in place of pork rinds, I also made my own jerk spice mix. They were lovely.

    A little faster alternative is get a deep fryer or a pan you can fry chicken in and buy lard to fry the chicken in, which I do and I only fry 6 or 7 minutes each side of the chicken at 300°F.
