Honey Lime Drumsticks
recipe slightly adapted from The Fresh 20 Cookbook
- grated zest & juice of 2 limes
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 8 chicken drumsticks (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
Whisk together the lime zest and juice, honey, oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Season drumsticks with the salt, pepper and paprika and arrange in a glass container. Pour the marinade over the drumsticks, seal the container and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and up to 24 hours.
Preheat an outdoor grill. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade (discard marinade), arrange the drumsticks on the grill over a medium flame and cook for 15 minutes, rotating the drumsticks every 3 minutes or so, until internal temperature reaches 165F and juices run clear.
