Serves: 8


  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1⁄2 cup Tabasco sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1⁄2 cup chicken stock
  • 16 chicken drumsticks
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1 small lime, cut in wedges


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Oil a glass baking dish.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and add the Tabasco, vinegar, and stock; bring to a simmer.
  • Rinse the chicken under cold, running water and pat dry with paper towels. Place the legs in a single layer in the prepared baking dish. Cut a few diagonal slashes in the skin of each let. Bake until the chicken starts to brown, about 6 to 8 minutes; turn the legs and cook for another 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Turn the legs again and pour the sauce over the top; cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, until the chicken easily pulls away from the bone. Season with salt and garnish with lime wedges.
