Ingredients

8
chicken drumsticks
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
vegetable cooking spray

SPICY HONEY-LIME BARBECUE SAUCE

1/4 c
butter
1 medium
onion, diced (about 1 cup)
12 oz
bottle chili sauce
1/4 c
honey
2 Tbsp
lime juice
1/4 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Let stand, covered, for 30 minutes.
2
Coat a cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 350 - 400°. Grill chicken, covered with lid, 5 to 10 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce grill temperature to 250° to 300°; grill chicken, covered with lid, for 20 to 30 minutes. If using a charcoal grill, place charcoal to one side. Use the hot side for the first part of grilling and the empty side for the second part of grilling.
3
Meanwhile, prepare Spicy Honey-Lime Barbecue Sauce. Reserve 1 cup of the sauce.
4
Brush the chicken with the remaining barbecue sauce. Cover with grill lid and grill 10 more minutes or until done. Serve chicken with reserved barbecue sauce. Garnish, if desired.
5
For the sauce: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; add onion, and saute 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chili sauce, next 3 ingredients, and 1/3 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes. You can store this in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
