smoky sweet chili drumsticks

Recipe details:

smoky sweet chili drumsticks

what you need

  • 1/3 cup Thai chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 5 to 8 (24 ounces) Gold’n Plump Chicken Drumsticks
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 green onions, sliced

here's how

  1. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Mix chili sauce, soy, honey and sesame oil in small bowl; reserve half of sauce to serve with cooked chicken. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Place chicken on grill; cover. Cook about 25 minutes, turning once or twice, until no longer pink near bone. Begin brushing remaining sauce on chicken during last 15 minutes of grilling.
  3. Serve chicken sprinkled with onions and reserved sauce.


There is enough salty-sweet sauce for both brushing and dipping smoky grilled drumsticks. If you’ve got a crowd, add some bone-in chicken thighs and use all the sauce as a barbecue glaze.
