Welcome to my quick and simple honey coated chicken drumsticks recipe.
I must admit I am a huge honey fan. I love the flavour it gives to my food and it makes puddings taste so amazing and so sweet. Prior to taking on the Paleo way of life I had never even tasted it and like many people relied too much on white sugar and would have a lot of brown sugar cookies when the opportunity was there!
But that was a long time ago now, so don’t hold it against me that much.
There is also a big debate as to whether honey is considered as a Paleo food or not. Personally bees have been making honey since the caveman days so from that point of view it is perfectly adequate to have in your diet. BUT it’s often considered to be high sugar and even though it is better than white sugar it is STILL honey.
On the Whole 30 challenge for example you can’t have it, yet you can have white potatoes which also contain sugar.
So whether you are a Whole 30 follower or you’re on Paleo embrace honey as it is much better than the choices you made before!
- 8 Chicken Drumsticks
- 1.5 Tbsp Honey
- Lemon Juice
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Add honey, lemon juice and salt & pepper into a plastic bowl and add the drumsticks, cover them all over with the honey marinate and then put them into a thick bottomed glass cooking dish.
- Put them in the pre heated oven for 25-30 minutes. When testing the drumsticks to see if they are cooked cut at the thick end next to the bone and if the meat is white then they are cooked but if it is red then put back in for a further 10 minutes.
