Easy & Delicious Baked Honey BBQ Chicken

Chicken.  It's the most versatile of all meats in my opinion.  There is nothing you can't slather over it, mix it with, or crumble it over.

We eat a ton of chicken and I'm always looking for new ways to serve it.  

This delicious and simple chicken recipe is not only sweet and savory, but it's also very easy and takes little time to prepare. 

Honey BBQ Baked Chicken


12 chicken drumsticks (thawed)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. garlic powder


1 cup BBQ sauce (any kind will work)
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, brown sugar, paprika, and garlic powder to make a rub.
Trim any excess fat off of chicken legs.
Rub the mixture onto the chicken legs, coating evenly on all sides.
Place on a foil lined cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non stick spray.

In another small bowl combine all sauce ingredients.
Take half the sauce mixture and brush onto the chicken.

Cook the chicken legs in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
Turn chicken and brush with remaining BBQ sauce and bake an additional 25-30 minutes.
When done, chicken will be fork tender and glazed.
