Balsamic Honey Drumsticks 

Last night for dinner I made these great balsamic honey drumsticks and some red beans and rice.  When Chris and I were in Oshawa a few weeks back, we stopped at Popeyes Chicken and I had a wrap with red beans and rice and loved it.  I made that with dinner too,  recipe coming tomorrow!



I started out with drumsticks obviously lol,  and the other ingredients shown below.

I thawed and rinsed the drumsticks and put them in a large freezer bag.

In a 4 cup measuring cup I put the remaining ingredients and whisked them all together.

I poured this mixture over the chicken in the freezer bag then placed the sealed bag in a baking pan in the fridge to marinate for 3 hours.  Every half hour or so I flipped the bag so it marinated evenly.

I lined the baking pan with parchment paper and greased it well,  placed the drumsticks in the pan and poured a bit of the marinade on them.


I baked this at 375 for 30 minutes, then turned the oven up to 425 and baked it for an additional 15 minutes.

They came out of the oven browned, juicy and smelling awesome!


I thought there might be leftovers for another night but “the boys ” ate 4 of them each lol!
