Asian Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks

You will need some extra time before making this recipe as you will need at least 2 hours to marinate and an hour for baking time.  I usually thaw out the drumsticks the night before and in the morning put the drumsticks in the marinate sauce.  Then, after work, it is just a matter of baking the drumsticks.  Super easy!!  (You may consider adding a dash or two of some red pepper flakes and a pinch or two of salt)

Asian Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks

  • Servings: approximately 6 people
  • Print

3 pounds of Chicken Drumsticks, bone in and with the skin

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 tablespoon Sesame Oil

4 tablespoons Honey

1/4 cup Soy Sauce, low sodium

3 Garlic Cloves, minced (if you don’t have the garlic on hand, you can substitute with garlic powder.   1/8 teaspoon garlic powder = 1 garlic clove).

1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

1 tablespoon parsley


in a bowl, combine everything EXCEPT the drumsticks.  Transfer to a gallon size ziplock type bag.  Now add the drumsticks.  Squeeze out as much of the air as you can and close up the bag.  Refrigerate  at least 2 hours (or up to 24 hours).  This will marinate the drumsticks.

When ready to bake:   Oven @ 375 °.   Remove marinate and drumsticks from bag and place marinate and chicken into a baking dish… approximately a 4.8 quart dish and at least 2 inches deep.  Total baking time is about 1 – 1 & 1/2 hours.  Flip drumsticks after every 30 minutes.  Bake until chicken is completely cooked.

Serve with your favorite sides.
