Damn Fine Chicken
Health Highlights
This easy and delicious Whole30-friendly recipe for roast chicken with caramelized shallots and a tangy vinegar sauce is one of my favorite weeknight meals!


2 large shallot(s) Shallots (minced)
3 green onion (stem) Green onion (or Calçot onions, thinly sliced)
3 tbsp Sherry vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (coconut oil; avocado oil; melted ghee)
1 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret
1 tbsp Fish sauce
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
10 drumstick Chicken, drumstick (skinless) (or 8 chicken thighs)


  1. Mix together the shallots, onions, vinegar, oil, coconut aminos, fish sauce, salt (2 large pinches), and pepper (several grinds) in a large bowl.
  2. Then, plop the chicken on top, and use your hands to make sure it's well-covered in marinade.
  3. Allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for a few hours. Personally, if I know I’m going to be short on time (which is almost always), I marinate this dish in the morning – that way, the chicken’ll be ready for me by the late afternoon, when I start preparing dinner.
  4. When you’re ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400°F on convection bake (or 425°F non-convection). Arrange the chicken (skin-side down) in an oven-safe baking dish and pop it in the hot oven.
  5. Bake the chicken for 40-45 minutes, flipping the pieces halfway through the cooking time. If you want to brown the skin some more, broil it for a minute or two.
  6. Arrange the drumsticks on a platter, and pour the cooking liquid over the chicken.
  7. Simple and ridiculously good!
