Let a touch of heat from the spices and the acidity of the lime transform these chicken drumsticks into an easy yet extraordinary meal for a crowd.
16 chicken drumsticks
Salt and pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon sugar
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse drumsticks, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Place in a flat layer in 2 large baking pans.
Mix remaining ingredients. Pour over drumsticks; turn them to coat. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes. Remove foil, turn drumsticks; bake until cooked through, 35 minutes, basting often with pan juices. Let rest for 10 minutes, then serve hot; or let cool, cover and refrigerate to serve cold.
I thoroughly enjoyed this drumsticks! I made a batch for my husband and I to eat over several nights and was very pleased with the way these tasted, even reheated! The seasoning ingredients are simple, standard things that I generally keep stocked in my kitchen, so that really helps to bring the cost of this meal down as well. I will definitely be trying this recipe over the summer on the grill!
Made this reciped for a picnic dinner at the Hollywood bowl. Very easy to prepare and cook. Good flavoring on the chicken. I feel that this would be best served hot. I served it at room temperature and found it to be okay. Make sure you have lots of napkins, the sauce makes it messy!
