Ramsay's Sticky Chicken Drumsticks

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Cadillacgirl

Watched Gordon Ramsay make these on Rachael Ray and they looked so good I had to try them - and they rocked! It's from his Healthy Appetite cookbook and they're a regular in my rotation - as soon as drumsticks are on sale, we have them for dinner! Great leftover - if there is any.

I was very disappointed with this recipe. The fish sauce was just too overwhelming, and the glaze was just too watery and didn't stick to the chicken. I smothered the chicken with hot sauce just so I could eat it and it wouldn't go to waste. My daughter didn't care for it either. Better luck next time Gordon. This recipe won't be staying in my recipe file.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F Lightly oil a large baking dish.
  2. Season the drumsticks with salt and pepper and arrange in the dish in a single layer. Drizzle over a little olive oil and bake in the hot oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Prepare the glaze in the meantime. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until evenly combined.
  4. Take the chicken out of the oven and pour over the glaze, to coat each drumstick.
  5. Return to the oven and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, turning several times, until the chicken is tender and nicely glazed. (I do it about every 5 minutes).
  6. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
