We adore chicken drumsticks and love making a huge batch of them each week. They are easy to warm up, taste phenomenal, and are kid-friendly. These Keto Instant Pot Chicken Drumsticks are going to have you screaming YES in umami ecstasy.
This recipe is from a brand new book on the Keto block called, Keto Cooking with Your InstantPot. Seriously, Dr. Karen, you had me at InstantPot.
As y’all know, I use the Instant Pot on the daily! We, also, eat low-carb, Keto so when the author, Dr. Karen, let me share a sneak peak of this beautiful cookbook with all of my readers, I had to get the word out there. I’m all for making your life easier (and healthier) so that you stick with this real-food thing for the rest of your life!
Anyways, let’s get to it.

Cooking Time: 20 :: Servings: 4
Nutrition Per Serving: 270 calories; 14g fat; 30g protein; 5g total carbs; 2g dietary fiber
- 2 tbsp (14 g) paprika
- 1 tbsp (7 g) black pepper
- 1 tbsp (15 g) sea salt
- 1 tsp celery seeds
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 garlic powder
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 2 lb (900g) of chicken drumsticks
- 1 cup (240 g) water
Combine all the spices and herbs and mix and set aside. Sprinkle half of the rub on the drumsticks. Add 1 cup (240 ml) water in the Instant Pot and place the trivet inside. Put the drumsticks on the trivet.
Turn on the Instant Pot by pressing “Pressure Cooker/Manual” button and set the timer for 20 minutes on HIGH pressure. Close the lid tightly and move the steam release handle to “Sealing.” Preheat the oven to Broil.
When the timer ends, you will hear a beeping sound. Allow the Instant Pot to cool down naturally until the float valve drops down. Press “Cancel” and open the lid. Remove the drumsticks and coat them with the herbal rub evenly.
Place the drumsticks on a roasting pan in a single layer. Broil the drumsticks for 2 minutes per side or until the skin is browned. Be careful not to burn them.
