I've been making this chicken dish for a while and it is one of Patrick and Sadie's favorite meals. Patch spent a solid hour sitting at the table eating these drumsticks this afternoon, and I decided that it was finally time to type up the recipe.
For the first time today I added bacon, in an attempt to tempt Mae to try them, but the bacon wasn't quite obvious enough, so while it was delicious, it still didn't temp her to try it. Maybe next time.
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 tbs minced garlic
1 cup almond meal
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
7 chicken drumsticks
3 green onions, minced
4 pieces of bacon, crumbled
Mix all the ingredients together, until it's combined:
Line a baking dish with parchment paper. Arrange the chicken on the dish:
Put a generous scoop of the almond past on each drumstick:
Spread the almond paste over the entire piece of chicken (sometimes I cover both sides, but today I only covered the top half and it worked really well):
Cover with foil. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350. Uncover and bake an additional 10-30 minutes (or until the internal temp has reached 170.... or whatever temperature you usually bake you chicken to).
Remove the chicken from the oven, allow it to cool for about ten minutes and enjoy!
