Asian BBQ Drumsticks – Publix Super Meal

Products for this recipe sponsored by Good Cook

Welcome to this week’s Publix Super Meals. Each week I am going to share a recipe to help you take the Publix Super Deals and turn them into Publix Super Meals!

With the deal on drumsticks this week at Publix, I knew I had to come up with a recipe using the chicken. One of my all time favorite ways to do drumsticks (and/or thighs) is by whipping up Asian BBQ Drumsticks. While it's one of the easiest recipes it's also packed with great flavor.

All you have to do is whip up a simple marinade and let them sit for a bit. Then you just bake the chicken in the oven - super easy. When you want a break from plain barbecue chicken, try this recipe and let me know what you think.

  4. Seal bag (cover bowl) and refrigerate for 3 - 5 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. After the chicken has marinated, place the chicken legs on a baking rack on a sheet pan. Note: you might want to line your sheet pan with foil to catch the sauce that drips off the chicken.It's hard to get off they pan when baked on.
  7. Reserve the excess marinade for basting.
  8. Bake the drumsticks in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and baste with half of the reserved sauce then bake for 10 minutes.
  10. Turn chicken then baste the other side and cook an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

    Michelle have you tried this with chicken wings?
    By the way it looks delicious. This is going on my grocery list for next week.

      Yes and it is FANTASTIC…it’s just a little more time consuming b/c you really do want to baste each side to really get that ooey gooey sticky sauce to bake on the wing. It’s also awesome on thighs.
      Ok gotta go grab lunch…I am drooling just thinking about them — tee hee.

    Michele are the weird ingredients available at publix but too pricy like the mirin and sriracha I want to try this so bad it sounds so yummy

    • says

      Yep–everything is available at Publix. The Mirin is cheap (it’s a sweet rice wine can easily sub with that if you wanted)

      The Sriracha is prob $3 – $4 but the bottle will last forever cause you just need a little bit of it…it’s definitely spicy 😉

      Both are likely with the Asian foods but the Mirin may also be with the vinegars.

    Thanks so much for the recipe. Great pictures and easy to follow instructions as always. :) This sounds really good. Thinking about trying it with the boneless skinless chicken breasts since that is what I have a ton of. Might also serve it with some quinoa and Asian veggies. Which I also have a ton of, thanks to the great sales at Publix. Trying to keep it on the light side. :/

    I am typically not a fan of drumsticks, but I made this Asian version tonight and they were FANTASTIC! The entire family really enjoyed them, and the best part is how simple they were to prepare. The baking time allowed ample time for me to whip up a batch of fried rice and sauteed green beans – yum! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks for another good one, Michelle.

    Re: Foil under pan/grates etc… beyond that, my toaster oven grates and pan always get discolored, greased baked on etc… from long term use. Same with, cookie sheet, smoker or grill grates.
    TIP: When you clean your self cleaning over, I throw those things in the oven as well. I was amazed at how my toaster oven pan turned out brand new.
    This is only for cookware that isnt nonstick coated.
