Paleo Honey Sriracha Roasted Drumsticks – Paleo friendly and can easily be converted to a Whole30 recipe. This recipe is the perfect balance between sweet and spicy! Perfect for those who love flavor combos as much as I do.
So, I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a little over a month now, and I’m so excited that I can finally share it with all of you. I would’ve shared it sooner, but the holidays were crazy and then I ended up doing the January Whole30 for three weeks. It wouldn’t have made sense to post a recipe that wasn’t compliant.
Most of you wouldn’t have been able to make it; though, this paleo honey sriracha roasted chicken can totally be converted to fit into your Whole30, but I actually prefer it the way it is –with all of the sweet ooey-gooey honey and all!
The ingredients are still super clean, and can easily be found in any grocery store. Again, my goal will always be to create recipes with ingredients that are easily accessible. I promise not to get too fancy pants on all of you as I start posting more recipes that are perfect for life after Whole30!
Plus, with this huge shift in the food industry, regular grocery stores are starting to carry products like coconut aminos, sugar free fish sauce and ghee. So you don’t always have to order certain ingredients online anymore!
Back to the recipe! This recipe is super easy to make and doesn’t require a bunch of ingredients. I used drumsticks, but you can do chicken wings, thighs or breasts. You will have to adjust the cooking time if you use something other than drumsticks (keep that in mind).
Another suggestion is to make your favorite chicken meatballs recipe (I love the one in the Whole30 book) and then toss it in the sauce before serving. So freakin’ delicious!
Paleo Honey Sriracha Roasted Drumsticks
Place chicken on baking rack and roast chicken for 50-55 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is lightly golden brown and crispy.
Remove chicken from oven then turn your oven up to broil. Place chicken in a large clean bowl, pour sauce over chicken, and toss until all pieces are coated.
Put chicken back on the baking rack and broil for 3-4 minutes to crisp up the skin.
Pin this recipe for later!
