Servings 4 , 2 drumsticks each



  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  • 12 Chicken Drumsticks
  • lemon wedges for serving


  • To make the marinade/glaze, whisk together the honey, oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes.
  • In a baking dish, resealable bag or container, marinate the chicken in the glaze for 30 minutes.
  • Grill or broil the chicken, medium heat, on both sides until the skin is crispy and juices run clear or the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, about 25-30 minutes. Be careful not to burn the chicken, the honey will char easily. Moving the chicken to a cooler part of the grill, if grilling, or moving the chicken further from the broiler, may be necessary.
  • Serve chicken with a squeeze of lemon.
