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
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.
In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the melted butter, granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
Pour the mixture over the drumsticks and mix well to coat. Spread the drumsticks in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the drumsticks until browned and crisp, about 55 minutes. Carefully turn after about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the honey sriracha sauce. Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat.
Add the honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice and stir until the mixture bubbles gently. Remove from the heat and set aside.
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.
Continue to cook the drumsticks for another 5-10 minutes; just long enough to lightly char the sauce to the drumsticks.
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.
Transfer the drumsticks to a serving platter and serve with remaining sauce, or drizzle with more honey; serve with lime wedges.
