Honey and BBQ Glazed Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet Potato French Fries
Honey and BBQ Glazed Chicken Drumsticks
The chicken I made without using a recipe, just by gathering different ingredients and basically winging it.
I let the chicken sit and marinate all day while I was at work.
The marinate consisted of: BBQ Sauce, Honey, Salt and Pepper, and a little bit of breading.
When I got home I turned the oven to 350 degrees, added more salt, pepper, sesame seeds, and BBQ Sauce on top.
Cook for about 45 minutes, about 10 minutes before it is done I mixed honey, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar and painted on a few coats before finished.
Sweet Potato French Fries
Recipe found on Pinterest from here!
Cut your sweet potatoes until they’re a medium thickness. Not hugely thick cut and not shoestring.
Let potatoes soak in water for an hour – half the day. (not mandatory, but recommended)
Preheat oven to 425°
Throw a Tablespoon or two of cornstarch into a plastic bag.
Dump a handful of sweet potatoes into the bag with the cornstarch. Twist the top of the bag so it forms a balloon with some air inside and shake the fries around until they’re lightly coated with the cornstarch.
Put your coated fries on a non stick cookie sheet.
Drizzle 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over the fries. Using your hands, make sure the fries are well coated.
Arrange them on the sheet again, so they have space between each fry. The less fries on the pan the better they’ll cook. Too many shoved together and they’ll never get crispy. They’ll just steam. Pop the fries into your preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile you can make the dipping sauce. Mix together 1/2 cup of mayonaise with 1 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce and 1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper.
You can adjust the proportions to taste. Mix it up and taste it then adjust as you like.
Check the fries after 15 minutes, flip them over (you might have to use a spatula depending on how “non stick” your pan is) and return to the oven if necessary for another 5 minutes.
