These bold and tangy Caribbean citrus flavors make these chicken drumsticks a staple in the kitchen!


My wife and I love making different variations of chicken drumsticks, They are delicious, affordable, and pretty easy to make. I love Caribbean flavors because of their pop. The lime, orange, and ginger combination provides for a fresh, comfort taste. Enjoy these as much as we do!

Caribbean Chicken Drumsticks

Caribbean flavors are so powerful and refreshing. Fresh lime, fresh lemon, garlic, onion, cayenne and others make chicken absolutely juicy and popping with Caribbean jerk flavors. Not to mention, drumsticks are an extremely cheap dinner and cut of meat. While this recipe does include quite a few ingredients, they are rather simple to make. This is a very quick and easy recipe for oven baked chicken. #chicken #chickenrecipes #dinner #protein #cheaprecipes


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp cumin


  1. Add all ingredients together and mix well.
  2.  Rest drumsticks in the marinade for 8 – 16 hours, and if you are short on time just add 1 cup of ketchup to the marinade to thicken sauce and be able to cook right away.
  3. Place drumsticks in oven cooking dish sprayed with cooking oil (if using sauce and not marinade, pour sauce over drumsticks).
  4. Cook in oven for 45 – 55 minutes at 400ºF until done, broil the last couple of mets to get a nice black on top.
