Honey soy chicken drumsticks

This delicious dinner treat will have everyone coming back for seconds!

There’s nothing better than a delicious and easy dish to whip up for dinner during the week and these honey soy marinaded chicken drumsticks are exactly that. Not only are they an incredibly low effort meal but they also only require six easy ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry. This last-minute meal can be served up alongside steamed veggies or rice for a simple Asian-style dish that’s much healthier than takeaway. If you’re only cooking for yourself or for two people, store the extra marinaded drumsticks in the freezer so you’ve got a quick and easy dinner on-hand next time you don’t much feel like cooking.
