Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Season drumsticks with salt and pepper and place in an oven-proof dish.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  4. 4 Combine orange marmalade, Dijon mustard, barbeque sauce, sambal oelek, and soy sauce in a small bowl.
  5. 5 Remove dish from oven and brush chicken with marmalade mixture. Return to the oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  6. 6 Remove dish again, turn chicken over, brush with marmalade mixture, and continue baking until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  7. 7 Remove dish from oven and baste chicken with remaining marmalade mixture. Preheat the oven's broiler. Return to the oven and broil until chicken starts to blacken and blister, 3 to 5 minutes.

  1. Very tasty!!! The only change I made the second time was instead of broiling, we grilled the chicken. Made them crispier and more tender--so good!
  2. I printed but could not find the recipe when I went I winged it! No mustard, and basically just baked big chicken thighs in the rest of the loosely remembered sauce....and it was awesome....served with rice, the sauce was terrific over the rice...I would think about adding a veggie like asparagus or even broccoli - Read more ...
  3. One of the easiest and tastiest oven-baked chicken drumsticks I had. I am making it again.
  4. Very good the tip about broiling at the end is key
  5. I made it as directed using chicken thighs It was ok but a bit bland. Given the number of ingredients that surprised me. I probably won't make it again.
  6. I am the submitter of this recipe and in my original submission I added an extra step not listed in the published recipe. Once baked, I placed chicken in the broiler for 2-3 minutes, charring the skin to taste. It makes all the difference!
