Description

Spicy, sticky, and sweet, this has so many wonderful flavors. It’s delicious over rice, but I often serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans on the side.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Apricot Preserves
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce
  • 3 pounds Drumsticks (about 12)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F. 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.

Can I take the skin off or will they dry out??? Some people said the skin needs to be crisped more…..I want to have the least amount of fat as possible so if it won’t be too dry, I would remove skin or maybe crisp the skin so fat is rendered.

These were delicious! I’m going to try them tonight, but using boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

These are delicious! I add a “splash” of tequilla to mine! These are a new family fav! (My husband and I ate 3 lbs of wings cooked with this glaze!)

Saw these and couldn’t wait to try them!! Loved the sauce- it definitely will be a repeat in our house! I would broil or brown the drumsticks first to get the skin crispy next time. Did anyone else have a problem with the skin?

Always a hit. I’ve also done it with the mango peach preserves. I use Frank’s.

REALLY tasty! The sauce is awesome!!! Easy and already had everything on hand, just needed to buy the chicken! Will definitely make again!

We absolutely loved these, but it took mine a lot longer than 45 minutes to cook (over an hour and I had to turn the oven up at one point). Either way though, my fiance told me that I really brought my “A” game at dinner tonight, so this one is definitely a keeper!

I have made this twice now, the first time i messed up and did not cook the sauce first, but this time i followed the instructions exactly and it was still a very bland tasting dish. The sauce never thickened up and i cooked it a little longer and cranked up the temp to 400. this dish smells really good while cooking but something is missing to give it that wow factor. would definitely not make this again.
