We have been all about chicken legs and drumsticks lately – especially in the air fryer. They turn out so perfectly juicy and tender – and in around 15 minutes! This keto drumsticks recipe is perfect with a side of Indian Spiced Brussels Sprouts – and all of it can be cooked in the air fryer which makes it super simple to make and clean up! I like the Corsari air fryer, however there are many models out there at various price points and sizes – find one that works best for your budget and kitchen space!

We’ve tried all sorts of keto drumsticks recipes however this one is the current favorite. The delicious blend of Indian spices and cream add an earthy goodness and drizzling lemon and a hit of cilantro to the final dish balances it out perfectly.

I made roasted brussels sprouts with a somewhat similar spice blend which complemented the chicken divinely! You can either cook the brussels sprouts in the air fryer after the chicken or pop them in the oven – either way, a delicious keto Indian meal.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also but these in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes as well.

Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects!
