Chinese bbq chicken drumsticks

Low carb chinese bbq chicken drumsticks

A chicken drumstick doesn’t need sugar. Or honey. Or maple syrup. It’s perfectly lovely on its own and if you do fancy a marinade, then this is hard to beat.

I’d recommend roasting in the oven and finishing them off on the bbq to get a bit of colour. You’ll need to keep the skin on to make this work.
