6 servings (serving size: 1 drumstick)

These zesty chicken drumsticks and sauce are good warm right out of the pan but will keep for up to two days in the refrigerator.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 7 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan, browning on all sides. Add honey mixture to pan, turning chicken to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 15 minutes or until chicken is done, turning chicken every 5 minutes. Uncover and cook an additional 1 minute or until mixture is thick and a mahogany color, and chicken is well coated. Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes. Cover and chill.

Took these to a potluck where they were much enjoyed. Kept the skin on the chicken as it keeps them moist and can be pulled off while eating. Needed a hands-off prep method, so I eliminated the water in the sauce to keep it thick, poured the sauce over them in a roasting pan lined with foil & sprayed with cooking spray, then roasted in a 400 oven for 30 minutes. Perfect. I added hot sauce after cooking, so next time I will mix some cayenne into the sauce.

Followed recipe exactly and it turned out great! Quick, easy, and super tasty. Served with green beens and whole wheat pasta with cheese sauce. Will definitely introduce into weeknight rotation.

This is a good, everyday, kid-friendly recipe. I gave it 3 stars because that's where it belongs--not really fancy enough for a special occasion, but a good, quick, easy, everyday meal.
