BAKED Chicken Drumsticks


  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • ⅓ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder, or to taste


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place drumsticks in a baking dish.

Step 2

Whisk water, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, butter, salt, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and chili powder together in a bowl; pour mixture over drumsticks. Cover with aluminum foil.

Step 3

Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour, turning chicken about halfway through. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
