Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped (from 1 bunch cilantro)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest (from about 2 limes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Marinade

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a gallon size ziploc bag, and squish to combine.
  2. Add the chicken, and massage/rub it around to coat all the drumsticks.
  3. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 2 days.

Cooking

  1. Preheat your grill to medium high heat.
  2. Cook the drumsticks until they reach an internal temperature of 165º, about 20-30 minutes minutes, turning the drumsticks half way through grilling. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Serve topped with fresh cilantro leaves and wedges of lime.

Notes

You can also cook them in a wire rimmed baking sheet in a 425º oven. Cook until they reach an internal temperature of 165º, about 20-30 minutes.
