Crunchy Mexican Drumsticks is a tasty dinner the whole family will love. Using crushed tortilla chips make a delicious and naturally gluten free breading.

If you can tell by my plethora of chicken recipes, chicken is definitely a favorite in our house. Lately I love drum sticks, they’re so inexpensive and juicy and delicious. Instead of combining lots of flour types to make a breading mixture I just threw some tortilla chips in the blender. This recipe is so easy it’s the perfect weekday meal.


With just a few ingredients and a blender you can easily make this chicken dish that is sure to satisfy your whole family. The key to making it extra delicious in the lime zest, the touch of acid really helps to lighten up the dish. I love to pair it with some yellow rice and canned green beans, such a simply dinner but so flavorful!
