Honey Garlic Sriracha Drumsticks



Honey Garlic Sriracha Drumsticks


My family is huge on chicken, we will enjoy it cooked just about any way possible, and these Honey Garlic Sriracha Drumsticks are one of our top favorites.

Chicken has always been a favorite meat, very low on fat {skin excluded of course}, so versatile in different recipes as well as cooking methods. But I think the no-brainer is that chicken is one of the most economical meats available.

Honey Garlic Sriracha Drumsticks

These Drumsticks are partially cooked first, then you start basting them with the amazing Honey-Garlic-Sriracha sauce. I don't mind hanging around the oven or the barbecue, basting away during the second half of the cooking - the more sauce you brush over the chicken, the more flavorful.

And ever so sticky !  I just love the combination of the ingredients in the sauce,,, sweet, salty and with an extra bite, thanks to the Sriracha Sauce.

A serving plate full of these delicious Drumsticks would not last long, not even if you are not that much into chicken, pinky promise. Do however keep those serviettes/napkins handy, as this is a saucy, sticky business and best way to eat them ?  with your hands, of course !  Unless you serve these at an elegant dinner get together ...

The sauce can also be used for dipping, but be sure to make a double batch in that case, as one batch is just enough to coat the cooking chicken a few times, and as I mentioned above, the more the better!

Honey Garlic Sriracha Drumsticks



INGREDIENTS:

12 Chicken Drumsticks
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Honey
2 TB Fresh Garlic, crushed
1 TB Thick Soy Sauce
1 TB Hot Sriracha Sauce   {or more!}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - spray a suitable oven dish with cooking oil {must be large enough for the chicken to be arranged in a single layer}
2.) Place the Chicken in the prepared oven dish - season to taste with Salt and Pepper - bake 30 minutes, turning over halfway.
3.) Combine the Honey, Garlic, Soy Sauce and Sriracha in a small bowl - make a separate bowl for dipping if you so wish.
4.) Remove the half cooked Chicken from the oven - baste well with the sauce and return to the oven for another 20 - 25 minutes - basting and turning over regularly - the Drumsticks are fully cooked when the juices run clear.

Serve immediately with salads and a crusty dinner roll - also great with mashed potatoes and a coleslaw.

    1. Tammy, we have a variety in the supermarkets in SA. I use the Staffords brand and it says "Thick Soy Sauce" on the bottle. Plain Soy Sauce does not indicate thick or thin, but any Soy Sauce will do in this recipe {replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment}

    1. Rey, Sriracha Sauce is a hot sauce (and spicy!) which you drizzle over just about any savory dish, mostly meats, hotdogs, burgers etc. I have also served these drumsticks with fries, usually on a Saturday :-)

    3. You are welcome, Rey ! TB is short for tablespoon or 15 milliliters therefore 1TB is one tablespoon and 2TB is two tablespoons - hope this helps :-)

    4. Bonjour Linda! Mon fils n'aime pas la sauce soja, alors, je voudrais savoir avec quoi je peux la remplacer? Merci

    5. Angelique, I have used Teriyaki sauce (same quantity as Soy sauce above) instead of Soy sauce before, which works quite well with the flavor combination in this specific recipe. Worcestershire sauce can also be used, but only use half and add a teaspoon of water as well :) Hope this helps !

  13. Bonsoir Linda! J'ai enfin fait ta recette un vrai délice! J'ai remplacé la sauce soja par du vinaigre balsamique mon fils a aimé (ce qui est rare), nous avions les doigts tout collants. Merci et à bientôt.
