Drumsticks are very inexpensive and a favourite with kids, especially when the chicken is smothered in homemade Cajun barbecue sauce.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons fancy molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 chicken drumsticks skinned

Method

In saucepan, bring tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, vinegar, mustard, onion, garlic, molasses, Cajun seasoning and Worcestershire sauce to boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Pour into blender; purée until smooth. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 month.) Set aside 2/3 cup (150 mL) to serve with drumsticks. Transfer remaining sauce to large bowl.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat. Close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 30 minutes. Add to bowl of barbecue sauce; toss to coat. Return chicken to grill; grill until slightly crusty but still saucy, about 5 minutes. Serve with reserved sauce.
