Healthy Eat of the Week: Skinnytaste’s Sweet & Spicy Asian Glazed Grilled Drumsticks

This week, I really tried to eat well. I started Protein World’s Weight Loss Collection and I didn’t want to ruin my results because I put a bunch of crap in my body. Summertime in the Jones household means grilling season. At least once or twice a week, I do the prep work and seasoning and my husband fires up our grill. This week, so that I could stay with my healthy eating plan, we grilled Skinnytaste’s Sweet & Spicy Asian Glazed Grilled Drumsticks along with some vegetable kebabs. The meal was so delicious that we were excited to have leftovers the next day for lunch. These tasty grilled drumsticks, which should be marinated overnight, are skinless, which makes them much healthier (only 255 calories for 2 pieces of chicken). We’ll definitely be making them again!

  1. 24 oz (8) skinless chicken drumsticks, with bone*

  2. 1/2 tsp garlic salt

  3. 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  4. 2 tbsp reduced soy sauce (Tamari for GF)

  5. 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  6. 1 tsp Sriracha

For the glaze:

  1. 3 tbsp sweet red chili sauce

  2. 1 tbsp raw honey

  3. 1 – 2 tsp Sriracha (I used 2, use more if you like it hot)

  4. optional, chopped chives for garnish


Season drumsticks with garlic salt and ground ginger. Place in a large ziplock bag or container and add the soy sauce, vinegar and 1 teaspoon sriracha and marinate overnight (the longer the better). Preheat the grill. In a small bowl, mix the chili sauce, honey and sriracha; set aside.

Grill the drumsticks on a rack lightly coating with cooking spray over medium heat, turning every 5 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes.

Brush the chili sauce mixture over the drumsticks on all sides and remove from the grill. Finish with chopped chives if desired and enjoy.
