  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 4 ounces tortilla chips (crushed)
  • 3 tbsp Mexican seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 400º F
    Line baking sheet with foil, and spray with cooking spray.
  • Wash chicken drumsticks and pat dry. Place on a plate.
  • Crush tortilla chips using a food processor. You can also place them in a plastic bag and crush them with your hand. Place the crushed chips in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Put your oil and Mexican seasoning in bowls and set aside.
  • Generously rub each drumstick with the Mexican seasoning, making sure to cover it all over. Place on a plate.
  • Working with one piece of chicken at a time, lightly brush some oil on the drumstick. Place it in the tortilla chips and nicely coat. Place the coated chicken on the baking sheet.
    Continue this with each piece of chicken.
  • Place the baking sheet into the pre heated oven, and bake until golden brown, and crispy (about 25 minutes), turning 1/2 way through.
  • When cooked, remove from oven.
  • ENJOY!!
