Drumsticks come with a built-in handle kids will love. Paired with a store-bought coleslaw mix and you've got a quick and easy summer dinner.


Ingredients

  • 10 chicken drumsticks , (about 1 kg)
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 tsp cider vinegar , divided
  • 5 tsp honey Dijon mustard , divided
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 celery seed
  • 454-g pkg coleslaw mix

Instructions

  • Preheat barbecue to medium. Toss drumsticks with oil and salt in a large bowl. Season with pepper.
  • Stir ketchup with brown sugar, 2 tsp vinegar, 1 tsp mustard, paprika and Worcestershire in a small saucepan set over medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved, about 1 min. Reserve half of the sauce in a small bowl. Set aside to let cool slightly.
  • Oil grill. Barbecue drumsticks, with lid closed, for 10 min. Flip and brush with sauce from pan. Continue barbecuing, turning often, until springy when pressed, about 10 more min.
  • Stir mayonnaise with remaining 4 tsp vinegar, remaining 4 tsp mustard and celery seed in a large bowl. Add coleslaw mix and toss to combine. Serve slaw alongside drumsticks and reserved barbecue sauce.
