BBQ Chili Drumsticks With Avocado & Tomato Salsa

Total Time

Lately I've had a craving for Mexican/Central/South American Food. I found this at the Chicken Farmers Website, and it looks delicious. For a complete meal, serve with Gallo Pinto, or Black Beans with Rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the skin from the chicken. Put the drumsticks in a medium bowl or plastic bag. Drizzle them with the olive oil and sprinkle in the ground cumin, chili powder, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  2. Preheat BBQ. Grill to medium heat. Grill the chicken turning once, until fully cooked and browned - about 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165°F
  3. While the chicken cooks prepare the fresh salsa; cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place in a medium size bowl. Peel and dice the avocado, dice the onion, mince the cilantro and gently combine all the fresh vegetables. Drizzle with fresh lime juice and toss again. Serve alongside the chicken.

I made this on a camping trip and it was easy, refreshing and healthy. The spices on the chicken work really well and was liked by both kids and adults. Made by bistro babes - ZWT 8

This was terrific! I did substitute breasts for drummies. We loved the salsa, too. Made for ZWT7, Count Dracula and his Hot Bites!

I absolutely loved the chicken. I used leg quarters instead of drumsticks, and they turned out wonderful! I thought the salsa had a little bit too much lime juice, but that's just personal preference. Made for Best of 2009 Tag game.
