Honey-mustard Chicken Drumsticks can easily be made for a large gathering.

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.


Start to finish: 45 minutes (10 minutes active)

Servings: 4

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.
