Are you ready for some football party fare? Try these Brown-Sugar Barbecue Chicken Drumettes
From time to time, I will visit the Martha Stewart/Every Day Food website to peruse recipes, get ideas and drool over the pretty pictures. I normally look for recipes that tend to be healthier for you, but for some reason this week, I am drawn to bad-for-you football party fare.
I mean, it's not like the temperatures have cooled off here (they have not). It's not like the football season has officially started (it has not). It's not like I have pulled out my favorite Texas Longhorn shirt to wear every weekend (not yet). Maybe it's the start of school that has me yearning for appetizers and dips and finger foods.
Regardless, this recipe is literally reaching through the computer screen and begging me to make it.
In due time, yes, in due time.
Brown-Sugar Barbecue Chicken Drumettes
(source: Martha Stewart/Every Day Food)
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 6 pounds chicken drumettes, patted dry
- In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside 1 cup sauce for tossing raw chicken; use rest for baked chicken.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds; line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil.
- Divide drumettes between baking sheets, and toss with reserved 1 cup sauce.
- Bake chicken until opaque throughout, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating sheets and tossing chicken halfway through. Toss baked drumettes with 1/2 cup sauce, and serve with remaining sauce on the side.
