Soy Sauce Chicken Drummettes from author @DarylWoodGerber

From Daryl aka Avery:

For the past week, I've been on the go, running around like a chicken with its head cut off (a disturbing image, by the way - funny on a Family Guy Youtube of Leghorn, but I didn't think I should post that here 'cuz it's sort of bloody, in a funny way.  Here's the link if you want to laugh out loud.)

Still photo from YouTube so you remember who Leghorn is.
Anyway, I'm exhausted from a weekend of a family event, followed by a library event, a lot of driving in traffic, and lots of emotions.

Authors (me) Diane Vallere, Andrew Kaplan, Carline Neil,
Glen Erik Hamilton and Brett Battles.

I even wrote Krista and asked her if she got the number of the bus that ran me down!  LOL

I am hydrating today, eating right, and writing!  Lots of writing. Deadlines are looming.

To relax, I took Sparky to the coffee shop. I write well there.
He was a hit with the outside crowd! Greeted everyone.
So what could be better than putting together a really easy meal of chicken wings? These little guys cook up in minutes. They're perfect with a simple green salad.

And they are the easiest appetizer ever for a party!

Coming on the heels of our book club week, I might add that they would be great at a book club. Messy, but napkins or wet-naps would solve that problem.


Soy Sauce Chicken Drummettes

1 package chicken drummettes (about 1 pound)
½ cup soy sauce (if you need gluten-free soy sauce, that works fine * I use the San J variety)
½ cup water

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Line an 8 x 8 pan with foil. 

Rinse the drummettes and set them in the foil, skin side up.

Pour in the soy sauce and water.  Seal the foil.

Bake the drummettes for 30 minutes.

Open the foil and turn the oven to broil.  Broil the drummettes for 5-10 minutes until golden brown.

Serve hot.

(You do NOT need to turn the drummettes.)

Savor the mystery and say cheese!

  1. Got to try this recipe! I love drummettes! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Brilliantly simple.
    And for those who like to tinker, we can add garlic or ginger or whatever!
    Keep you head up and rely on Sparky to show you how to great the world.

  3. I have to try this. Simple and easy is always a plus!

  4. do remember that ornery ole rooster. Ben years though. Quick and easy is how I like my chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Dear Not - that ornery rooster was funny. I remember imitating his voice. LOL ~ Daryl
