Chili Lime Chicken Drumsticks with Avocado Oil [Recipe]

Spicy Keto Chicken Drumsticks [Recipe]

Chili lime chicken drumsticks have been my hero this past week. You see, my house sits right on top of this ridiculous hill with zero shade, completely exposed. With rain more than half the year, it’s usually no issue. The sun and I don’t see a lot of each other, but when it does come to pay a visit, there’s no escaping it. You can’t run, you can’t hide, you just have to deal with it. (Kind of like mother-in-laws, hey-oh!)

Don’t forget to PIN it for later! ?

As the temperature climbed, my house quickly turned into a fiery inferno. I had convinced myself if I even looked towards the kitchen I would burst into flames. Since I have yet to accept heatstroke as my fate of death, I’ve avoided cooking as much as possible.

Turn on the oven? No thanks. Stand over a stove? I’ll pass. Sure there are salads, but… meh.

Coming through in the clutch: the outdoor grill.

Low Carb Chicken Legs [Recipe]

I got out of my house and enjoyed the sunshine while cooking up something tasty. I made a massive batch of these chili lime chicken drumsticks meal-prep-style on the grill. And since you can fit approximately 500,000 chicken legs on the barbecue, meal prep was a total breeze. We’re talking uncomplicated ingredients, minimal clean-up, dinner, lunch, lunch, lunch. I ate these for dinner that night, and they were just as good cold straight out of the fridge over the next few days. Lazy and delicious!

Honestly, I didn’t mind eating this over and over. First of all, drumsticks dude. You seriously can’t go wrong. I could probably live off of them alone and be a perfectly happy camper. Secondly, repeat meals made for an effortless way to account for macros. I know for some, eating the same thing day in day out sounds like a nightmare. But if you find something that you enjoy, nothing wrong with repeating it a few times!
