Serves 2-3
  • 1 package Chicken Drumsticks (6 to 8 pieces)
  • ½ cup Honey
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon White wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions plus a little extra for garnish
  • 2 large garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dry cilantro
  • Black pepper and salt to taste

Rinse the chicken pieces under cold water. Dry them with paper towels. With a Knife or fork, poke the chicken pieces a few times each. (This will allow the marinade to fully impregnate the chicken meat instead of just hanging on the skin.)

In a large container combine the minced garlic, green onions, 1 tablespoon of dry cilantro,  and salt and black pepper to taste. Also add in 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, ½ cup of honey, and ¼ cup of Dijon mustard; mix everything together until all the ingredients are combined, taste the flavor and more salt and pepper if needed.  Reserve ¼ cup of this mixture to baste the chicken when cooking.

Rub whatever is left of the Honey-Mustard marinade all over the chicken pieces, give each piece a good massage with this mixture. And refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (Overnight will be perfect!)

This chicken can be grilled or baked.
To grill it: grill it for about 20-30 minutes turning a few times in between. Baste the chicken with the leftover marinade (¼ cup of marinade we reserved earlier?)  every 6 minutes or so.

To bake it: Preheat the oven to 400ºF
Cooking time will be 30-35 minutes. Basting the chicken every 10 minutes.

Place the chicken on a baking sheet, cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes in the oven baste the chicken pieces with the leftover marinate. (¼ cup we reserved earlier)

Place the chicken pieces back in the oven and after 10 more minutes, baste the chicken pieces once again with the rest of the marinade.

Place back in the oven and continue to cook for 10-15 more minutes or until the chicken pieces are completely cooked!

Serve over mashed potatoes, garnish with chopped green onions!
