SPICY HONEY-LIME GRILLED DRUMSTICKS (Adapted from Southern Living)
I’ll be doubling this recipe for my group of 10.
8 chicken drumsticks
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Vegetable cooking spray
Spicy Honey-Lime Barbecue Sauce
Garnishes: fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes. Coat cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 350º to 400° (medium-high) heat. Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 5 to 10 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce grill temperature to 250º to 300° (low) heat; grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 20 to 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare Spicy Honey-Lime Barbecue Sauce. Reserve 1 cup sauce.
Brush chicken with remaining barbecue sauce. Cover with grill lid, and grill 10 more minutes or until done. Serve chicken with reserved 1 cup barbecue sauce. Garnish, if desired.
***Note: the bbq sauce can be made in advance.

1/4 cup butter
1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup)
1 (12-oz.) bottle chili sauce
