Oven-Fried Drums

chicken wings
I adapted this saucy little recipe from Canadian House and Home January edition.

The original recipe was higher in sugar and fat. I made a few revisions to lower the carbs and after making the dish for the first time decided to replaced the wings for more meaty skinless drumsticks. (hence the picture of wings not drums) I would also highly recommend to use our own Sugarless BBQ Sauce.

I would suggest using your broiling pan or an oven proof cooling rack to bake the drumsticks on to allow the heat to circulate.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
