Hot and Sweet Chicken Drumsticks

The Pioneer Woman made this dish this past week and I immediately bookmarked it to make this week. Now, I bookmark a lot of recipes but usually do not get to them right away since I have so many and it just depends on what food we have in the house or what's on sale at the store. However, the only thing I had to buy for this meal were the chicken drumsticks and they are pretty inexpensive. This recipe comes from Pioneer Woman's new recipe website, Tasty Kitchen, and it was submitted by member Terri. These were really good. Of course, I'm a huge fan of any type of protein with some type of fruit preserves. You could even use regular chicken breasts if you didn't want to get drumsticks. It's pretty versatile! I also halved this recipe and used a package of 7 drumsticks. I served the chicken with mashed potatoes, side salad and honey yeast rolls.

1 Cup Apricot Preserves
1/2 Cup Ketchup
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce
3 Lbs. Drumsticks (about 12)


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. Serves 6.
