Sweet n tender chicken drumsticks coated in a special homemade honey BBQ sauce and grilled to perfection.
Honey BBQ is one of my favorite flavors because it is sweet and savory and I can never get enough of it!
I have a ton of different types of BBQ sauces in my pantry but homemade is always best. This sauce is super easy to put together, just 5 minutes. How much easier can it be! Also, my guess is that you have every single ingredient in your kitchen right now. Plus this honey BBQ sauce can be used to marinated chicken wings, breasts, and even chicken kabobs.
We’ve started firing the grill a few weeks ago and I’ve starting grilling all kinds of meats but drumsticks are still an all time classic.
These drumsticks can be grilled or baked in the oven but during the summer I prefer to grill them to get that nice and smokey flavor that you can’t get with baking. They are perfect for dinner or small gatherings as well because they are cheap and can big grilled or baked in big batches.
I grilled a batch of these honey barbeque drumsticks last night and the family wiped the plates clean.
Grilled Honey BBQ Drumsticks
- 18 chicken drumsticks
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon style mustard
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
For the Sauce:
Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Combine all the ingredients except for the chicken. Bring to boil then reduce heat to low, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 5 minutes the sauce should be thick and bubbly, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 15 minutes on each side or until done. Baste chicken generously with sauce; turn over, and grill 1 minute. Baste again; turn over, and grill 1 minute. Serve with remaining sauce.
