Honey Soy Chicken Drummies

Servings 6 people


  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup sherry or use apple juice with a splash of cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated gingerroot
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 12 chicken drumsticks


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate chicken overnight or for at least 8 hours (see recipe).
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine first 5 ingredients (honey through garlic); squish mixture around then add the drumsticks. Marinate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pour chicken and marinade into a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; cover with aluminum foil wrap and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is done.
  • Uncover and let chicken bake for another 5 minutes.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Brown rice and steamed broccoli spears.
VEGETARIAN: Use non-breaded faux chicken patties instead of drumsticks, but marinate for only about 5 minutes and adjust cooking time as needed. Heat the marinade (after marinating) and use it as a sauce over the “chicken”.
KOSHER: No changes necessary.
GLUTEN-FREE: Make sure soy sauce and sherry (or juice/vinegar) are gluten-free.
