Gluten Free Breaded Drumsticks with Buffalo Wing Sauce

Gluten Free Breaded Drumsticks for dinner?

Last evening I had every intention of creating this elaborate fall dinner- and my husband proclaimed he was sick of squash and needed some man food.. aka Gluten Free Breaded Drumsticks with Buffalo Wing Sauce.

So here's what I made.. In between crunches (this breading is soo crispy!) I heard endless "Mmmmmmms" So heck- I figured I might as well pass this easy little recipe along to all of you! This Gluten Free Breaded Drumsticks recipe of COURSE is Gluten/Dairy Free. And if you dont do the egg thing.. make a "Butter cream" to dip the chicken in instead.

You do you this by combining Dairy Free Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar. Easy Peasy. The Chex Cereal is a cheap alternative to Gluten Free Bread crumbs. When used as breading its better than Panko. By a long shot!

For this Gluten Free Breaded Drumsticks recipe I found I liked the cereal crushed to almost a powder- you can do this in a food processor or by going at it with a rolling pin over a sealed bag of cereal (my husbands idea)

ps.. this IS NOT diet food.. even though its not deep friend. :)
