Honey Chipotle Chicken
Serves: Serves 4-6
Honey Chipotle Chicken Recipe - slightly sweet, slightly spicy and oh so good!
  • 3 lbs drumsticks (8-10 drumsticks)
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder (I use THIS one)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lime, juiced, about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoons honey or sweetener of choice (THIS is a great, low glycemic option, too)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil (I use THIS)
  • optional for garnish: extra lime slices to squeeze over the chicken and/or chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Combine chipotle chili powder, garlic powder, sea salt, the juice of 1 lime, honey and oil in a small bowl and stir until well blended.
  2. Pour the mixture over chicken drumsticks in a sealable container or a gallon sized plastic bag. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and place the drumsticks on a raised edge baking pan or 9x13 casserole dish. Bake for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, spoon some of the drippings over each drumstick and bake for 5 more minutes or until skin is golden brown and starting to blister.
  4. To serve: Spoon some of the remaining drippings over each drumstick and serve with lime wedges and chopped fresh cilantro.
To prep for a freezer meal:
Place the drumsticks in a gallon sized freezer bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure to get each piece well coated. Place the bag in the freezer. When ready to cook, let thaw and cook as directed.
