Crispy Baked Drumsticks with Honey-Mustard Sauce


From EatingWell:  January/February 2011

These baked chicken drumsticks are crispy-crunchy outside and succulent and juicy inside. Serve with sweet potato fries and spinach salad.

4 servings, 2 drumsticks & 2 tablespoons sauce | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes


Honey-Mustard Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Mix breadcrumbs, paprika, onion powder and salt in a shallow dish. Drizzle with oil and mash with a fork until the oil is thoroughly incorporated. Lightly beat egg with a fork in another shallow dish. Dip the drumsticks into the egg, then press into the breading mixture until evenly coated on both sides. (Discard any remaining mixture and/or egg.) Place the chicken on the prepared rack.
  3. Bake the chicken until golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a drumstick without touching bone registers 165°F, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. To prepare sauce: Combine yogurt, mustard, honey and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the sauce with the drumsticks.
