I don’t know about you but when I’m given a choice out of all the different chicken parts, I tend to typically reach for the legs. Roll um in egg and coconut flour and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and you’ve got a whole new flavor profile to try with this Paleo Fried Chicken recipe. ‘Paleo fried’ meaning not fried…meaning baked, but you get the idea. :)
Chicken is always good for a party…saaaay maybe a Memorial day party. Instead of ordering a bucket of fried chicken from the local delivery place pick up a bag-o-legs from the store and bake these little guys for your guests.
I promise you won’t need a stockpile of napkins while you’re eating them. Napkins are a funny invention don’tcha think? Personally I don’t stock them in the house. I prefer those half paper towels and they serve dual purpose.
Of course if you give these Paleo Fried Chicken Legs a try, drop me a line on the tweety, FB or Google+ and let me know how they turn out for ya. :)
