Sweet & Spicy Honey Glazed Drumsticks

Servings: 4


  • 12-14 chicken wing drumsticks about 2 lbs.
  • 2 tsps baking powder or potato starch
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper or freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds to garnish
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • Sticky honey glaze:
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2-3 Tbsps hot sauce of choice to taste
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos Bragg's liquid aminos, or low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f. and place a rack over a large roasting pan.
  • Pour about 1 cup of water into the roasting pan.
  • Alternatively, you could heat up your outdoor grill to 375 degrees, spray the grates and BBQ these using the same instructions below, and watching them very closely throughout the process.
  • In a small bowl whisk all glaze ingredients together really well. Set aside.
  • Pat your drumsticks dry with paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and baking powder, then toss well to coat.
  • Arrange the chicken onto your prepared roasting tray/rack (suspended above the water on grates as shown) then roast for about 35 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  • You'll know when they're done, as juices run clear and the skin is golden and crispy.
  • Remove from the oven and brush them with your glaze, then place back into the heated oven for just 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat this process several times for the next 5-6 minutes so that they get 3 layers of this delicious glaze.
  • Sprinkle the drumsticks with sesame seeds and green onions and serve with any remaining untouched sauce (sauce shouldn't touch raw chicken)

    SOOO I have to admit these drumsticks were SLAMMIN!! I made I believe it was 12 drumsticks for two people and Ummm we only have four left. I plan on cooking them again tonight and adding some veggies into the marinade. The Chinese restaurant can’t touch the sweet taste but yet light and satisfying flavor. I highly recommend you introduce your FFF palate to these Fit Fyne FABULOUS Drumsticks.
