  • Olive oil spray
  • 10 (4 oz each) chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil (to save you some serious cleanup later as the honey caramelizes) and lightly spray it with olive oil spray.
  • Arrange the drumsticks in the pan. Whisk together the melted butter, honey, mustard, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Evenly pour the mixture over the chicken, brushing to coat.
  • Bake 1 1/4 hours, basting every 15 minutes, until the chicken is browned and juices run clear.
