Yield: 3 servings

I love my orange marmalade spicy chicken drum sticks! There’s nothing difficult about this recipe. If you can dump and stir, then you’ve got it.


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • 6 chicken drum sticks, large plump
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Caribbean Jerk seasoning mixture
  • ½ tsp. coarse ground pepper
  • ½ tsp. red chili flakes
  • ½ cup orange marmalade, sugar free (I used Polander brand)
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbl. Mustard, classic yellow


Rinse and pat dry the chicken drum sticks. Place in a medium mixing bowl.

In another small bowl, combine the salt, paprika, Caribbean Jerk seasoning mixture, pepper, red chili flakes, marmalade, ketchup, honey and mustard. Whisk together well.

Pour about half plus of this mixture on the drum sticks. Toss and coat them well.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place the drum sticks on the cookie sheet. Dollop about a teaspoon plus more of the thick sauce on top of each drum stick and spread out.

Take a doubled piece of foil and lightly place on top the chicken. Roast in a 400-degree oven for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil after 15 minutes and let the chicken continue cooking uncovered. It will get a slight char on it.

The internal temperature should be about 165 for doneness. For more browning/charring, turn oven to broil (chicken should be about 12-18” from broiler) for a couple of minutes.

Remove when done. Recover with the foil and let the chicken rest for about 5-7 minutes.

Serve with remaining sauce and your favorite tastes, flavors and textures like salt and pepper kettle chips, pepperoncini, olives, deli sliced pepper rings, bleu cheese dip, veggies and more!


You can also use chicken wings or drumettes with this recipe!
