  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon erythritol (or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (for garnish)
  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, erythritol, minced garlic, minced ginger, and red pepper flakes. Mix well.
  3. Place the chicken drumsticks in a large ziplock bag or a bowl and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours for maximum flavor).
  4. Arrange the marinated drumsticks on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they are not touching. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and the skin is crispy.
  5. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds before serving.

Note: You can broil the drumsticks for an extra 2-3 minutes for even crispier skin.
