Honey Baked Chicken Drumsticks Recipe: Easy Baked Chicken Dinner!

This week I am featuring a quick and easy recipe, and to be honest, this is a last minute raid-the-fridge recipe! It was created with on-hand ingredients during a quick weeknight experiment! The results were so good, I needed to share it with you guys!  


It is best prepared with skin-on drumsticks or wings, and be sure to stick under the broiler to let the honey sizzle into the crisped breaded skin. I loved how the honey added just a touch of sweetness and was not overpowering. My hubby loves this dish and he RAVES about it every time I make this. Well, who doesn't like some finger licking good Honey baked Chicken?


Cook Time: 50mins

Cost: $ 8

Serves: 2 - 4

Ingredients:

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 1/3 cup fine Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt 

Preparation:

  1. Sprinkle salt evenly over chicken drumsticks; set aside
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it on a large baking sheet.
  3. Mix breadcrumbs, garlic powder and salt in a bowl. Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture, Roll each chicken drumstick in the breadcrumbs, making sure each piece is covered on both sides.
  4. Place the chicken on the prepared rack. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until brown and thoroughly cooked. Don't like raw chicken! Turn chicken pieces every 10 to 15 minutes.

Hi Carmen, so glad to hear that you visited Florida, and had a nice time. Love, love your healthy crispy, oven fried chicken. No grease, just the goodness of the flavor of the honey, garlic, and the crispy coating. I also bake mine and not use eggs to dip them into...this method with the honey is 'genius'...I agree with your hubby! Rave, rave, rave, and plenty of raves; well deserved my sweet friend! Thanks for sharing! xo
