Ingredients
  • Chicken:
  • 8 drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Spicy Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce
Directions

For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Rinse and pat dry the drumsticks. Mix the oil, chili powder, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper in a medium bowl or resealable plastic bag. Toss the drumsticks in the seasoned oil to coat well. Bake the drumsticks on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet (so air circulates around chicken) until very tender and the skin is crisp, 50 minutes.

For the spicy sauce: Mix together the butter, hot sauce and BBQ sauce in a large bowl.

Toss the drumsticks in the spicy sauce until well coated. Place the drumsticks back on the rack and continue baking an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note: For an alternate milder sauce, whisk together 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, juice and zest of 1 lime, 1 clove of garlic, minced and some salt and pepper.
