Spicy Drumsticks

Who don’t love drumsticks? Most people like drumstick in one way or the other. As we are chili ‘freaks’ we both love these spicy drumstick and the delicious marinade which we use as a dipping sauce.

If you are not used to eating chili every day, you might add less chili sauce and more honey. You can alway add more chili if you find it to mild, but it is more difficult to go the other way.


Ingredients (4 servings)

12 drumsticks

3 tbsp. hot chili sauce (today we’ve used Sriracha)

3 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. good olive oil

4-6 garlic cloves, chopped

Juice from 1 lime




Mix together chili sauce, honey, olive oil, chopped garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Add the drumsticks and mix well. Make sure that all drumsticks has been marinaded before covering the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rest in the fridge for at least an hour.

Cover a roasting pan with baking paper and put in the marinated drumsticks. Pour the remaining marinade over the drumsticks and bake in the oven for 55-60 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit. Turn the legs halfway to avoid the marinade from getting burned.

Pour the remaining marinade in a bowl and serve with the drumsticks as a dipping sauce.

Serve with your favorite side dishes like black bean salad, smoked beans or with celery and blue cheese dressing.


Bon Appétit!
