For this week’s chicken-themed recipe, I’m making a popular game day, tailgating, party finger food out there. the sweet, sticky, mustard and smoky flavors and the crispy crunch of the chicken can be addictive while you are glued to your favorite sports program.

So make sure you make a lot of these drumlets because I guarantee you that these babies will be over in minutes.

It’s also a copy-cat recipe that most fast food restaurants out there sell for an outrageous price and the portion they give you for that price is ridiculous. 

Just once, go ahead and make these barbecue drumlets at home, once you’ve made them, you are going to feel a bit silly about the times you bought these sticky barbecue side-dish from fast food restaurants.

Why?

Because these are really so easy to make.

CHICKEN THEMED DISHES.

Keeping with my once a week theme, I try a different kind of dish with chicken as the main ingredient every week, if you are a new visitor to the blog, welcome! and please use the search button to find recipes based on chicken. I would highly recommend starting with baked one pot lemongrass chicken curry and Tandoori chicken.

Can I use wings instead to make these honey-mustard barbecue drumlets?

Yes, you can, most restaurants sell these as wings, the reason I’m using drumlets for this recipe is just my personal preference.

Workflow to make sticky barbecue sauce honey mustard chicken?.

There are four steps to this recipe 

1/coating the drumlets in a flour and seasoning.

2/making the sticky sauce.

3/deep-frying the chicken.

4/mixing the drumlets with the sauce.

Can I use any type of store-bought barbecue sauce to make the honey-mustard chicken drumlets?

Yes, use your favorite barbecue sauce, especially the ones with the smoky flavor and a hint of spice, I was actually experimenting and making my own barbecue sauce but couldn’t get that smoky flavor, mine was a bit sweeter than the store-bought barbecue sauce. still, if I get it right, you’ll see the recipe posted on the blog. until then store-bought barbecue sauce works fine.
