Spice Up Your Dinner With Crispy Honey Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks

Tired of the same-old dinner? Try something a little different by using a new sauce mixture to liven up that chicken dinner! Sriracha sauce is extremely popular, but if you take that spicy condiment and mix it with some sweet honey you end up with a perfect flavor that you are going to love.

We made it using drumsticks but if you wanted to you could put it on chicken thighs, breasts or wings just adjust the cooking time accordingly. Just make sure you use skin-on chicken because you are going to want it to be crispy.

Ingredients:

  • 5 chicken drumsticks
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and top wire cooling racks so your chicken can cook more evenly and not get stuck to the sheet. Use baking spray on your wire racks to help the cleaning process.

In a large bowl sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper onto your chicken drumsticks.
