Spicy Grilled Drumsticks

What a beautiful day in Minnesota. We’ve been fortunate that this summer has been cooler than normal.

So ~ my husband has been doing a lot of grilling this summer. I come up with the recipes and he heads out to the grill to “cook” them.

We tend to have a lot of chicken thighs and breasts but one day I decided to venture out of the norm and get some drumsticks. This paleo Spicy Grilled Drumsticks recipe came out delicious! How did my brain manage to do that?

First I bought a pack drumsticks.

I also used about 1/4 cup of olive oil ~

In a small bowl, using a whisk, I mixed the ingredients with the olive oil.

In a separate bowl, after cleaning and drying off the drumsticks, I added them to a bowl then dumped the olive oil mixture on top. Next I mixed it all together.

Ingredients

  • 1 package drumsticks (6 or so)
  • 2 teaspoons Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Grey Poupon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pure Honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (more if you like really spicy food)
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil

Directions

  1. Clean and dry the drumsticks then place them in a medium sized bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, add the olive oil and the rest of the ingredients then whisk them together to combine them.
  3. Slowly pour the olive oil mixture over the drumsticks stirring frequently to combine it all. (You may not need to use all of the mixture depending on your taste.)
  4. Grill the drumsticks until they are cooked all the way through.

That’s it! Such an easy and tasty recipe.

I served this with a baked sweet potato and a cucumber/tomato salad.
