Honey Lemon Chicken Drumsticks

I found a cookbook for grilling recipes at Chapters on sale for $10, and this recipe was an adaptation of one of the recipes in the cookbook. I adjusted it to match the ingredients I had on hand. I roasted these in the oven, but I'm sure they'd be great on the barbecue as well!

Makes 12 chicken drumsticks


12 chicken drumsticks, skin on
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tsp dried parsley
Dried chili flakes, to taste
Black pepper and sea salt
Canola oil spray, for greasing


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Coat the foil in canola oil spray. Place chicken drumsticks evenly spaced on greased foil.

In a small bowl, combine all remaining ingredients and whisk together. Brush sauce onto drumsticks. Turn the drumsticks over and coat the other side. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven, and turn them over. Place back in the oven for 20 more minutes.
