Crispy Italian Chicken Legs

Chestnuts are probably one of the most recognisably festive nuts out there, with them beig eating at winter markets after being roasted and served in a paper cone! Mmmm You know the smell I talk of, when you walk around and you get these wafts of orgasmic flavour!

Chestnuts are an odd nut, having a higher than normal carbohydrate content and is why they’re commonly used to replace potatoes or as a flour if ground up, so if you’re looking for a gluten free flour it’s a great alternative!
What I like most about this paticular recipe is how easy it is but how great it tastes! Perfect for this time of the year!
Well I’m sure you’re already wanting to get started! So let’s get makin’ & bakin’!!
