With love and creole seasoning and smoky chipotle sauce in your future
creole drumettes with herbs & smoky chipotle sour cream sauce
Yield: About 6 snacking lovers
Preheat oven to 425
16-20 chicken ddrumettes
4 Tbl. butter
1 Tbl. Creole seasoning mix (I used Tony Chachere's Originial Creole Seasoning. You could substitute cajun seasoning.)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. dried mixed herbs (your choice~~I used parsley, basil and oregano.)
1/2 cup sour cream
4 Tbl. mayonnaise
1 Tbl. Smoky Chipotle sauce (I used 9-80 Panama Gourmet Sauce ~~ you could substitute another hot sauce)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 lime juice
Put the butter in a small microwavable bowl; heat on high for 15 seconds. Add the creole seasoning, salt and paprika and mix.
Wash and dry the drumettes. Spread on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Drizzle on the seasoned butter and toss and coat the drumettes well. Bake in a preheated 425 oven for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and some crisping forms on the drumettes. Remove, sprinkle on the dried herbs and let rest a few minutes then serve.
Sauce: Combine the sour cream mayonnaise, smoky chipotle sauce, salt and lime juice and blend. Refrigerate until ready to serve with the drumettes.
