Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons ground ancho chile* (or chipotle powder)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken drumettes

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small saucepan, add the butter and melt over medium-low heat. Stir in the honey, and cook until the mixture bubbles, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, pecans, ground ancho and garlic powder. Season the marinade, to taste, with salt and pepper.

** Arrange the drumettes on a baking sheet, and brush each with the marinade. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Baste once, halfway through baking time. Transfer to a serving platter and serve hot.

*Cook's Note: The ancho chile is a dried poblano chile. It is also sold as "pasilla" in the US. It is a deep red color, and the flavor ranges from mild to pungent. The rich, slightly fruit flavored ancho is the sweetest of the dried chiles. Anchos are often sold whole and can be stemmed, seeded then ground at home in a coffee or spice grinder. They can also be found at most supermarkets, Latin specialty markets or online.

**Cook's Note: Cover your baking sheet with tin foil for easy clean up and to prevent marinade from burning in the oven.
