  • 2 lbs chicken drumettes


  • 6 Tbl Butter
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 2 Tbl Distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbl Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup Pecans chopped
  • 2 Tbl Ground ancho chile* or chipotle powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small saucepan, add the butter and melt over medium-low heat. Stir in the honey, and cook until the mixture bubbles, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, pecans, ground ancho and garlic powder. Season the marinade, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the drumettes on a baking sheet, and brush each with the marinade. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Baste once, halfway through baking time. Transfer to a serving platter and serve hot.
