Photo and Recipe: Diana Rattray
A lemon and honey mixture glazes these delicious baked chicken legs. This is a quick meal to fix, and it's easy on the budget. Serve this chicken with rice, noodles, or potatoes.


  • 2 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or Canola oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning or a seasoned salt blend
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce


Wash chicken and pat dry. Toss in a food storage bag with the flour and Creole seasoning.

Melt butter with olive oil; pour into an 11x7-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 350°.

Arrange chicken in the baking dish, turning to coat with the butter mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.

In a saucepan, heat honey with brown sugar, lemon juice, and soy sauce, stirring to blend.

Pour the honey mixture over the chicken pieces and return to the oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes longer, turning the chicken pieces every 10 to 15 minutes.
Serves 4.
