Spicy Molasses-Barbecued Drumsticks
3 Tbsp, bottled
apple cider vinegar
1½ Tbsp, plain or seasoned
1 Tbsp, or light
canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
½ tsp, minced
1 medium clove(s), minced
uncooked skinless boneless chicken drumstick(s)
- To make the molasses barbecue sauce, combine the chili sauce, vinegar, molasses, chili powder, chipotle en adobo, and garlic in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring, until thickened, 2–3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, spray the grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare the grill. Place the chicken on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, about 8 minutes. Brush the chicken with the barbecue sauce. Cook, turning the chicken, until deeply glazed and cooked through, 5–6 minutes longer. Yields 2 drumsticks per serving.
