Sweet and Spicy Chicken Drumsticks


In my original guide on meal prepping, I wrote about my love for the oven. I find it to be the quickest, easiest, and cleanest way of preparing my meals. The best part is that there’s no continuous stirring, flipping, or mixing. I just set my timer and get cracking on preparing other parts of my meal for the week. With a 40 minute bake time, this recipe leaves you with delicious chicken and 40 minutes of golden prepping time!

Use those 40 precious minutes to prepare a veggie and a carb to pair this chicken with. There’s no correct or incorrect way to prep. Chose foods that you enjoy and that fit your nutritional goals. I like to pair this chicken with sriracha potatoes and asian-style green beans. It also pairs well with rice, quinoa, broccoli, and snap peas. Don’t be afraid to experiment! Try out this recipe and let me know what you think. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!

  4. Add chicken and mix until all pieces are coated evenly.
  5. Transfer chicken onto baking dish leaving space between each piece. Place in preheated oven.
