Honey Garlic Drumsticks are saucy and delicious! Chicken legs are baked until crispy and coated in a a homemade sweet and salty honey garlic sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and diced chives to take it over the top. These drumsticks are perfect for an appetizer or a fun dinner option!


  • 6 chicken legs
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken legs on a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. This allows all sides of the chicken legs to get nice and crispy. Use a paper towel to pat the chicken legs dry. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile whisk together the soy sauce, honey, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in a bowl. Set aside half of the sauce to be kept contaminated-free for later use. After baking the chicken legs for 20 minutes, baste with half of the sauce.
  3. Bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the thickest part of the chicken legs reaches 165 degrees.
  4. Toss the chicken legs with the remaining half of the sauce, garnish with the sesame seeds and chives and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd. Makes for a great grab-and-go appetizer option!
  • If they need to be made in advance, the sauced chicken legs can be kept warm in the oven until serving.
