"A sweet-chili sauce and honey mustard marinade creates a great twist on an old favorite. The crunch of panko bread crumbs makes a great combo." — MERRIPAN

sweet chili sauce

panko bread crumbs

These were absolutely fantastic! My husband and his friend were well on their way to eating every single drumstick, but I managed to snag one for myself, and I'm glad I did!
I am truly a beginning cook, just graduated from boxed macaroni and cheese, and they were so easy to make! The only problem I had was that a lot of the bread crumb coating came off when I tried turning them over in the oil. Any suggestions?
Oh no, this one did not work for me. I followed the instructions exactly with the exception of leaving the chicken in the marinade longer than instructed. There was no flavor to the chicken at all. I will not make this again.
This. Was. Incredible. If I could give this more than five stars, I totally would.
I made sure my drumsticks were dry before coating and I made sure to shake the excess coating off before dropping in the oil. I added some pepper for taste and I mixed some chili sauce and honey mustard to go on the side of the drumsticks. These went so fast I had no time to take pictures. Even my kids inhaled their portion and asked for more!
This was really good! I used thighs instead of drumsticks, but followed the recipe exactly other than that. Thanks for a unique new way to make fried chicken!
I didn't fry these. I sprayed them with Pam and baked in the oven for a healthier version.
These were really good. I did expect them to be a little bit spicier and a little less sweet but we still enjoyed them. I did have a hard time getting the breading to stay on the chicken, it kept falling off. I think next time I make this I will use a little less honey mustard and add a little bit of extra spice to it so we get the sweet and spicy. Thanks.
I have made this recipe twice. Was even told by my dh that was great the next day for his lunch. My only problem is that the coating always explodes off the chicken. I think I need to make sure to dry the chicken before putting it in the marinade. Will definitely make again.
EXCELLENT! Very different and delicious. The whole family raved! I have made it 2 times in 2 weeks! Thanks for sharing!
