Great chicken drummettes that are perfect as an appetizer for a tailgate party, or any party for that matter. They are simple to make and incredibly tasty. There’s just enough spice to make you heat seekers happy.
Okay seriously man, what kind of a dude steals all his wife’s food like that. Not cool man, not cool.
I’d love to tell you how perfectly awesome these were. I’d love to tell you I ate a truckload of these bad boys. Yet all I can tell you is the one I sampled while shooting the photos really quickly was amazeballs.
I’ve made these before so I can attest to them being good. However I hate saying that when I did not get to taste test a truckload of this particular batch. I had no idea hubs had them all till it was too late. I swear you just can’t trust some people.
So while I decide whether or not I need a lawyer for this crazy behaviour I’ll share the recipe with you. The one I ate was amazeballs. So there’s that.

Spicy Chicken Drummettes
In a medium sized bowl, or container, combine the drummettes, spices, salt, and pepper. Mix it all up till the drummettes are coated really well. Allow to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour, ideally overnight if you can.
Fire up your grill to a medium heat, I'd shoot for about 350 to 425 degrees F.
Now spray non stick spray all over a rimmed cookie sheet. Pop the sheet on the grill and allow it to get hot.
Now toss your drummettes onto the cookie sheet. Pop the lid down and let them cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your heat.
Carefully flip them over and pop the lid back down. Allow to cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your grill.
Keep an eye on them during the time as every grill cooks a little differently. Most have at least one hot spot and you should know where yours is.
Remove carefully from the grill.
Heat your barbecue sauce up in the microwave, or on top of the stove.
Place the drummettes in a medium sized bowl. Pour the heated barbecue sauce over top of them. Mix them around in it.
Enjoy with a big old messy smile!
You can adjust the heat up or down depending on your own personal taste.
You can substitute another sauce if you like another better.

Are a drummette fan? Or more of a wing person?
I like them both, but I have to say I’m more of a wing girl. If I cut up a bunch of chicken for a party I’ll dig through the entire platter till I find the wings. I figure it’s my reward to get them since I do all the cooking.
