How to Make It

  1. Combine chicken stock, bourbon, honey, and thyme sprigs in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is syrupy and reduced to 1/3 cup. Discard thyme. Whisk in mustard and green onions. Divide glaze in half.

  2. Preheat grill to high heat. Combine black pepper, salt, and ground red pepper; sprinkle over chicken drumsticks. Place drumsticks on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Cover and grill 3 minutes or until charred; reduce heat to ­medium.
