Sticky Chicken

I haven’t posted anything in a while. We have had a busy month I guess. I found another recipe for chicken drummettes on Simply Recipes. It was pretty good, I don’t have a picture because if you seen one drummette you’ve seen them all. Anyway, my mom used to make sticky chicken which taste a lot like these came out. So my thoughts are this is just a revamped version of sticky chicken.

8 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 ½ Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup olive oil
2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
20 chicken drummettes

Rinse and pat dry drummettes, place in a large bowl, or plastic bag. Mix together garlic, honey, mustard, soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper for marinade. Pour marinade over chicken and make sure each piece is well coated. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Preheat over to 400 degrees. Place chicken on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake 30-40 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken drummettes) until well browned and cooked through.


Spicy Chicken Drummettes

I guess they aren’t too spicy, but it’s just all a matter of opinion. This is a super easy recipe that you can use wings with too; grocery stores sell the wings packaged with the tips already removed. What ever you like really.

2 teaspoons of ground cumin

1 teaspoon of powdered garlic

1 teaspoon of cayenne powder

1 teaspoon of paprika

1 teaspoon of marjoram, crushed

1 teaspoon of salt

2 lbs of chicken drummettes

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Mix cumin, garlic, cayenne, paprika, marjoram and salt in a small bowl. Rinse the chicken pieces and pat dry. Rub the spice mixture all over the chicken. Pour the olive oil onto a large baking sheet and spread it around. Roll the chicken pieces in the oil until lightly coated on all sides, then arrange them in a single layer without touching.

Bake for about 20 minutes. Flip the pieces over and bake for about 10 to 15 more minutes. They should be slightly crisp and golden on the outside.

Hot or cold they are delicious!
