During the summer months, you can find my family gathered around the grill enjoying delicious dishes like this chicken recipe. You can serve the drumsticks hot off the grill or chilled. —Mary Ann Sklanka, Blakely, Pennsylvania
- 12 chicken drumsticks (3 pounds)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup apricot jam, warmed
- 1/4 cup prepared mustard
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. For sauce, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat 15-20 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°-175°, turning occasionally and basting with sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve immediately, or cool slightly and refrigerate until chilled and serve cold. Yield: 6 servings.
