These baked honey barbecue drumsticks that I made for my husband's birthday dinner this week were a Pinterest recipe find. Thank you Pinterest! These seriously could not have been easier and were finger lickin' good!
I saw this three ingredient recipe on several sites, so I don't know who exactly to credit for this idea. Basically, you're just adding honey to your favorite BBQ sauce and baking the chicken in the oven for an hour. The finished result taste so good! Of course you could make your own BBQ sauce from scratch if you have a recipe you like. I like Sweet Baby Rays honey barbecue sauce, but any good BBQ sauce will do. Adding additional honey not only sweetens thing up, but it helps the sauce stick to the meat.
12 pack of chicken drumsticks
bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
1/4 c. of honey
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick spray. Place chicken on foil. Salt and pepper chicken. In a small bowl, mix barbecue sauce and honey. Brush sauce on both sides of chicken and place in oven. Bake for one hour. Half way through cook time, turn chicken over and brush another coat of sauce on top before placing back in oven. Brush more sauce once chicken is done cooking and has cooled. Serve with extra sauce.
