:: Sticky Mustard Chicken Drumsticks

July 13, 2009 at 8:00 am 11 comments

I made these drumsticks the other night and they were a huge success! The sticky and sweet chicken doesn’t last too long so I would recommend making a little extra for a snack later on. Serve them with a fresh salad for a tasty supper or with this bulgarwheat salad for a really filling dinner.

Sticky Mustard Chicken Drumsticks

This marinade also works great with duck or even a full roasted chicken. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Serves 4
10 chicken drumsticks.
2 tablespoons of marmalade.
1 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard.
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar.
1 tablespoon of olive oil.
A good pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.
Add the marmalade, vinegar, mustard, oil, sea salt and black pepper in a large roasting tray, and whisk to combine. Add the chicken drumsticks to the tray and toss until all the chicken is covered in the sauce. Place the tray in the oven and cook for 40 minutes or until cooked through. Baste halfway through the cooking time. Remove the chicken from the oven and place on a plate. Place the roasting tray full of juices over a medium high heat and simmer and whisk until the sauce thickens. Serve the chicken with a tasty bulgarwheat salad and coat with the thick sticky sauce.

    Hey Donal,

    This looks great and my roommate (who gives me a deal on the rent because I cook for her) LOVES mustard – I can't wait to make these!

    But, what flavor marmalade did you use?

    Can't believe we have the exact same antique baking tray! It's gorgeous!

    I have a similar recipe, but I add tons and tons of stuff to the marinade. Will shoot mine later this month when we have another BBQ with friends planned.

    They look delicious! Perfect for an alfresco lunch in the garden 🙂

    Hey Treehouse Chef!
    Why thank you! Any recipes for a good old southern spicy seasoning?

    Hey Christine!
    Yeehaaaw- tasty food and low rent sounds like the perfect combo! I'll stick it in to the recipe now but it was orange marmalade I used.

    Hey Kay!
    I keep telling you we are actually the same person, they just had to seperate us and make us live in different countries! Great minds hey?

    Hey Katiecakes!
    Definitely love the sound of that with some nice fresh salad!

    I can't stop staring at this post…

    Must make this as soon as my kitchen is usable once again (no sink at the moment!)

    This recipe is making me drool!

    These are so mouthwatering that I started to crave for them at this time of night. A large glass of beer would be great with these.

    Oh my, this looks absolutely scrumptious mumtious! Guess what I have most of the ingredients with the exception of the chicken, guess I'm making this soon. Great pics!

    Could you use raspberry jam instead of marmalade and could you please explain what is the difference between supper and dinner? Here in Canada, supper and dinner are interchangeable and both mean the last meal of the day. ie: breakfast, lunch, dinner/supper.

    Donal –

    Don't know if you saw my tweet, but I made these last night and they were t-totally fantastic. My roommate loved them!

    Katklaw777 –

    375 for 45 minutes works pretty consistently for bone in skin on thighs and legs. Less time for breasts.
