Honey and mustard is a good combination for poultry, especially. This means you can even try this recipe on duck or quail. It requires no marinating time so it’s a quick fix. If you do not have mustard powder you can instead use the mustard paste (60ml) and remove the milk. Let’s get to it.

Quick Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Put chicken drumsticks in bowl and cut vertical slits on each drumstick and set aside.. Put your dry mustard in a jag, add milk and stir and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the mustard flavor to grow milder.
  2. Add honey, tsp salt, black pepper and mixed herbs to the mustard and stir. Take set-aside chicken add 1 tsp salt and toss the chicken to evenly apply the salt on each drumstick.
  3. Spoon the honey-mustard mixture over the chicken drumsticks and mix. Put drumsticks in shallow casserole dish. Spoon some more honey and mustard mixture on each piece. Bake for 1 hour. Half-way through the baking time (30min) turn your chicken drumsticks and add some more honey mustard. Bake for the remaining 30 minutes.
  4. Your chicken is ready. Serve with your favorite starch.
