Limey Cue Drumsticks

Limey Cue DrumsticksChicken drumsticks kick it up in a garlicky lime marinade prior to being grilled or broiled. Serve with Coconut Rice, a green salad and wedges of fresh pineapple.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 package PERDUE® Fresh Chicken Drumsticks
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon prepared BBQ seasoning rub
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
Smokey BBQ sauce (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a gallon-size zippered plastic bag, combine olive oil, BBQ seasoning rub, lime juice and zest, and garlic and mix well; season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add drumsticks and toss to coat. Close and refrigerate chicken in marinade for 15 to 30 minutes (or longer in refrigerator).
  2. Preheat broiler or grill to medium-high heat. Cook drumsticks 14 to 16 minutes, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and golden brown (thermometer inserted in the thickest part of drumstick registers 180°F | 82.2°C).
  3. Remove from grill or broiler and sprinkle chicken with cilantro and serve with BBQ sauce on the side, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.
