Allergy-Friendly Crispy Grilled Chicken


  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 8 Tbsp. + some for coating chicken (more if you need it to make it stick)
  • 1 1/2 C of Panko crumbs
    • (If particularly course, consider grinder into a finer mixture, to help it stick to the chicken.)
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated garlic
  • 2 tsp. paprika

*As always, you should experiment with the quantities and even add different flavors (chili powder, for example, if you like spicy). 

What to do:

  1. Rinse off drumsticks. Then, lightly coat in olive oil.
  2. Combine Panko crumbs, salt, pepper garlic and paprika. Then, start adding olive oil until moist.
  3. Add chicken to coat.
  4. Fire up the grill and cook these babies. I start the grill hot and put the chicken on, then try to keep the temp around 350 degrees. I typically do about 10 minutes a side. But everybody's grill is different. You could also try baking for 20-30 minutes and see what you think.

How kids can help:

  • Combining the Panko and spices.
  • You can place the chicken in a large plastic Ziploc bag with the Panko mixture and let kiddo shake, shake, shake.
