Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks

Next week I’m taking time off to spend at the cottage. I’m already in vacation mode but I didn’t want to leave you all for a week without sharing a recipe.

I’ve been tinkering with this barbecue chicken recipe like a musician messing around with a new song. After trying several combinations I finally arrived at a blend of flavors for the marinade that makes the chicken come alive!

Here is what I came up with...let me know if this one strikes a chord with you and if you have any suggestions!

Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks

12 skinless chicken drumsticks
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 clove garlic
2 tsp grainy mustard
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Whisk all ingredients (except the chicken) together in a small bowl. Place chicken in a large resealable bag. Add marinade, seal bag and turn several times to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 hours.

Preheat grill to medium setting. Place chicken on grill and discard marinade. Grill until chicken is no longer pink in the center but still moist, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Volume: Makes 6 servings
