Honey-drizzled chicken drumsticks

I generally cook recipes with chicken breasts, but once in a while I like to switch things up. Honey-drizzled chicken drumsticks are tasty, simple and budget-friendly. The chicken is baked, not fried, with a touch of sweetness.

Besides the chicken drumsticks, the ingredients are all typically stocked in the pantry. This dinner doesn’t take much time to assemble, but it does take time to bake. Plan for a whole hour to assemble and cook in the oven.

I like to serve the drumsticks with sweet potatoes and vegetables.
