This recipe is for the grill, but I've used it in the oven also. You can make the sauce in double or triple batch and keep it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It's delicious with chicken, pork, even beef!
Spicy Molasse-Barbecued Drumsticks
2 servings, 5P+/serving
3 TBSP bottled chili sauce
1 1/2 TBSP plain or seasoned cider vinegar
1 TBSP light molasses
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp minced chipotle en abodo
1 garlic clove minced
4 (3oz) chicken drumsticks, skin removed
1 To make the molasses barbecue sauce, combine the chili sauce, vinegar, molasses, chili powder, chipotle en abodo, and garlic in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring, until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, spray the grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare the grill. Place the chicken on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, about 8 minutes. Brush the chicken with the barbecue sauce. Cook, turning the chicken, until deeply glazed and cooked through, 5-6 minutes longer.
On the Broiler:
Preheat broiler, broil chicken 5 inches from the heat, turning frequently for 12-13 minutes, brush with the sauce and broil 5-6 minutes longer turning once or twice.
Cooking times vary with the size of the drumsticks!
