Hot and Sweet Drumsticks

I wanted to try a recipe from The Pioneer Woman’s new site called Tasty Kitchen, so I went with a recipe that PW had made herself.

It was really tasty!   The only issue I had was that it took longer than 45 minutes to cook.  I think mine took an hour, but I was using larger drumsticks.  Next time I’ll probably just use the sauce on chicken breasts so they cook faster.


Hot and Sweet Drumsticks

  • 1 Cup Apricot Preserves
  • 1/2 Cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce (I used Sriracha)
  • 3 Lbs. Drumsticks (about 12) I had a 3 # package of 7 larger drumsticks


Preheat oven to 350*. In a small saucepan, combine preserves, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until preserves are melted.

Arrange drumsticks in a single layer on a 13 x 9″ baking pan. Pour sauce over drumsticks, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done, spooning sauce over drumsticks while baking.  Serve over rice.

Serves 6
