Baked Sticky Chicken Legs

Baked Sticky Chicken Legs

Mix up the marinade before you head to work and throw them in the oven when you get home for a delicious and easy meal!


Yields 4-5 servings

  • 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Firebee Raw Honey
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. orange marmalade
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4-5 chicken drumsticks
  • cilantro, optional


Step 1

In a large zipper bag, combine the rice wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Firebee Raw Honey, garlic, soy sauce, orange marmalade, and salt & pepper. Add the chicken legs and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 3-4 hours, or overnight.

Step 2

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a large sheet pan with parchment paper to make clean up easier. 

Step 3

Place the drumsticks on the sheet pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until juices run clear and the internal temperatures reaches 165 degrees with a meat thermometer. Do not discard the marinade!

Step 4

While the chicken legs are cooking, heat the remaining marinade in a saucepan over medium heat until it reaches a boil. Turn to low and allow it to simmer until it thickens.

Step 5

When your chicken legs are cooked, brush with the thickened marinade and place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes or until they are browned and sticky.

Step 6

Top with cilantro if desired and enjoy!
