These honey-molasses chicken drumsticks are zesty and has an amazing sauce that’s good warm right out of the pan but will keep for up to two days in the refrigerator.

Servings           3

Prep                 15 minutes

Cooking time     20 minutes



·         1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

·         2 tablespoons water

·         2 tablespoons honey

·         2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


·         1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

·         1 tablespoon molasses

·         1 teaspoon minced garlic



·         1 teaspoon olive oil

·         6 chicken drumsticks, skin removed


·         1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

·         1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl; whisk together and set aside.


  • Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan, browning on all sides. Add honey mixture to pan, turning chicken to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 15 minutes or until chicken is done, turning chicken every 5 minutes. Uncover and cook an additional minute or until mixture is thick and darker colour, and the chicken is well coated. Remove from heat; serve immediately, or cool before refrigerating.


Before measuring out your honey, spray your measuring spoon with non-stick spray. The honey won’t stick to the spoon and it will slide right off!
