Honey Barbecue Chicken

Ashley Lemon


Honey Barbecue is my favorite kind of sauce on chicken. I think I could eat the honey barbecue sauce by itself it is so good. I don’t usually cook drumsticks, but these are amazing. The dark meat give it a great rich flavor that leaves you wanting more. Enjoy!
