Give this wonderful sweet and spicy chicken recipe a try for your next dinner or football party.


  • 10-12 Chicken drumsticks - skin on
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for the pan
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Honey Sriracha Sauce

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil. Dry the chicken with paper towels and place in a large bowl.

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the melted butter, granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Step 3

Pour the mixture over the drumsticks and mix well to coat. Spread the drumsticks in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake the drumsticks until browned and crisp, about 55 minutes. Carefully turn after about 30 minutes.

Step 5

Meanwhile, make the honey sriracha sauce. Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat.

Step 6

Add the honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice and stir until the mixture bubbles gently. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Step 7

Once the drumsticks are golden brown, carefully drain the clear juices from the chicken off the baking sheet, and pour 2/3 of the sauce over the drumsticks and turn your oven to broil.

Step 8

Continue to cook the drumsticks for another 5-10 minutes; just long enough to lightly char the sauce to the drumsticks.

Step 9

Carefully remove the drumsticks from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the drumsticks and gently toss to coat.

Step 10

Transfer the drumsticks to a serving platter and serve with remaining sauce, or drizzle with more honey; serve with lime wedges.
