Sweet & Sour Drumsticks

Plate of chicken wings

Total Time: 45 minutes



  • 2/3 cup fine dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 8 chicken drumsticks (about 2 pounds total), skin removed, trimmed

Honey-Mustard Sauce

  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Mix breadcrumbs, paprika, onion powder and salt in a shallow dish. Drizzle with oil and mash with a fork until the oil is thoroughly incorporated. Lightly beat egg with a fork in another shallow dish. Dip the drumsticks into the egg, then press into the breading mixture until evenly coated on both sides. (Discard any remaining mixture and/or egg.) Place the chicken on the prepared rack.
  3. Bake the chicken until golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a drumstick without touching bone registers 165°F, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. To prepare sauce: Combine yogurt, mustard, honey and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the sauce with the drumsticks.
