Honey Dijon Chicken Drummettes

Honey Mustard Chicken DrummettesIngredients

  • 1 1/3 pounds chicken drummettes (about 10)

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

  • Salt

  • Vegetable oil


  1. Heat a cast iron pot half full with vegetable oil to 325°F and preheat the oven to 450°F.

  2. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, and fry it in the hot oil for about 7 minutes, turning the drummettes over once. Remove to a paper towel to drain, and season with sea salt.

  3. While the chicken is frying, making the sauce by melting the butter in a small sauce pan over medium low heat. Then add the honey and two mustards, and heat through, so the honey is thoroughly runny and melted.

  4. Place the sauce in a large bowl, and add the drummettes. Toss to thoroughly coat.

  5. Arrange the chicken on a Silpat- or parchment-lined baking sheet. Spoon any extra sauce over the top, and bake for 10 minutes. You can easily double or triple this recipe to feed a crowd.
