Orange BBQ Drumsticks

So here is a recipe I found in a magazine--I can't remember which one. But it met ALL my criteria for a recipe: it's easy, cooks in less than 30 minutes, with only 5 minutes prep, uses less than 5 ingredients, and is yummylicious. I sometimes cook things that don't follow these criteria, but not that often! This one is going on the regular rotation.

Without further ado--I give you Orange BBQ Drumsticks.

Preheat oven to 450. Line a rimmed pan with nonstick foil, or spray regular foil with cooking spray. Remove skin from 6-8 chicken drumsticks (the recipe said 8, the package I bought had 6; there was some sauce left over but not a lot).

Stir together 3/4 c. BBQ sauce, 1/4 c. orange marmalade, and 2 tsp. chili powder. Reserve 1/4 c. of sauce and dip the drumsticks in the rest to coat. Bake 25 minutes. Drizzle remaining sauce over drumsticks.

I served these with a pasta salad, but potato salad would be good too, for a picnic-y feel. Enjoy!

Updated: Oops, I forgot to say that for more tips and tricks, go here.


  1. Oo! I think I may try that sauce on just plain chicken breasts, which my lazy offspring prefer.

  2. Sounds yummy! I've added it to next week's menu!

  3. it makes me hungry. I bet it would be good on chicken breast tooo!

  4. Yum! The potato salad sounds good, too!

  5. Oooo, I'm definitely trying this one!! It's strange... seems like I've tried three recipes lately that call for orange marmelade. We had a turkey salad the other night, and the dressing in the recipe was made from soy sauce, orange marmelade, and ground ginger. It was pretty good.
