Ingredients

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 6 pounds chicken drumettes, patted dry

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside 1 cup sauce for tossing raw chicken; use rest for baked chicken.

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds; line 2 rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil.

  3. Divide drumettes between baking sheets, and toss with reserved 1 cup sauce.

  4. Bake chicken until opaque throughout, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating sheets and tossing chicken halfway through. Toss baked drumettes with 1/2 cup sauce, and serve with remaining sauce on the side.

Cook's Notes

Make a big batch of this scrumptious stir-together barbecue sauce, refrigerate up to 2 weeks, and have an easy chicken dinner. Chicken drumettes are actually part of the chicken wing -- just the right size for kids to nibble on.

    This is a great recipe also. I cut all of her recipes in half due to a smaller family and it still feeds plenty. I'm making the Ham-and-Potato Bake tomorrow. I know love Martha Stewart!

    Correction: I made 1/3 of the sauce recipe, NOT 1/4.

    Great recipe! I made a 1/4 of the sauce and it worked for 2lbs of drums and thighs. Cooked it on a Sil-Pad in a rimmed baking sheet. I didn't have worcestershire sauce, so I used A1 sauce and some Braggs Aminos. Worked great. Absolutely will make again.

    Does anyone know if these would work in the crock pot?

    Very displeased with outcome. Too Ketchup-y, skin was slimy, wings were greasy. Broiler helped, but I will throw this recipe away.
