Brown Sugar BBQ Chicken

Simple, tasty and great for entertaining.  These brown sugar bbq chicken drumettes make a great summer meal for those nights where you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.   

Ingredients – Serves 4 

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce*
  • 1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken drumettes, patted dry
  • *Make sure your Worcestershire sauce is gluten free – most versions contain malt vinegar.  Both French’s  & Lea & Perrins in the United States are gluten free, but I have not found a gluten free version in Canada.  If you are not able to get a gluten free Worcestershire sauce, click on the following link to make your own – 


    1. In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire, cayenne pepper and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Toss drumettes in 1/4 cup of sauce; use rest for baked chicken.  

    2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake chicken for 30 minutes total – 15 minutes on each side.  

    3.  Toss baked chicken in 1/2 of remaining sauce and serve the other 1/2 on the side for dipping.
