There's a lot to love about chicken drumsticks, including the price.
Drumsticks, especially when purchased in bulk, can cost less than 70 cents a pound, which is about as inexpensive as any poultry or meat gets. These zesty, honey-mustard chicken drumsticks cost about 65 cents per serving to prepare and take just 45 minutes to make.
Double or triple the recipe and you've got a fun dish to serve at a backyard party. If you like, you can mix in some wings, as well.
HONEY-MUSTARD CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS
Start to finish: 45 minutes (10 minutes active)
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons coarse-grain mustard
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray, then set it on top of the baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, oil, curry powder, salt and pepper. Using a brush, coat the drumsticks completely with the honey-mustard glaze. Arrange the chicken pieces on the prepared rack.
Bake, basting occasionally, until the chicken is golden on the outside and an instant read thermometer registers 165 F when inserted at the center, about 30 to 35 minutes.
