Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by teresas

This is out of "The Backyard Barbecue Cookbook" We don't really care for drumsticks so I used this on skinless chicken breasts. Worked great. I have it marked "excellent!" in the book. You can add a little chili sauce if you prefer it hotter. Hope you enjoy! Cooking time does include 1 hour marinating.

Really delicious! I don't have a grill so I browned the chicken on the stove then finished cooking them in a 350 oven for about 40 minutes. Next time I think I will try cooking them only on the stove as another reviewer tried. Made for Please Review My Recipe cooking games.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the soy sauce, garlic, onion, pepper, honey and ginger wine or sherry in a small pan, stir over a low heat until the honey softens and the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  2. Remove the skin from the drumsticks and score through the flesh at 3/4 inch intervals.
  3. Pour the marinade over the prepared chicken and allow to marinate for 1 hour.
  4. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade and barbecue over a preheated, oiled gill with the hood down for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally until the chicken is tender and juices are clear.
  5. Brush two or three times with the remaining marinade towards the end of cooking.
