  • 4 chicken drumsticks

Mix together for the sauce


  • Line a pie plate with foil. Don't be lazy about this step otherwise you will either be scrubbing forever, or end up throwing out the pie pan.
  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Lay the drumsticks out on the pan.
  • Mix together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and make sure it's to your liking. If I were making this for myself, I'd add a few red pepper flakes.
  • Pour the sauce over the drumsticks and make sure they are well-coated. Move them around, flip them, put them on their sides, just make sure the chicken has saucy goodness on it.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. Flip them over and cover with the sauce.
  • Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the drumsticks are cooked through.
