Deviled Chicken Drumsticks
Mustard and cayenne pepper flavor this easy recipe.
“Deviling” food just means adding spicy ingredients that also color the food a deep red or gold. Cayenne pepper, paprika, and mustard are the ingredients used to get this combination. These drumsticks are especially good for dipping. You can
use a spicy mixture for the dip, like salsa mixed with yogurt or mayonnaise, or something cooling, like sour cream with mint and chopped cucumber.
If you’re serving this recipe to kids, you can cut down on the mustard and cayenne pepper for a milder recipe. Don’t omit
the paprika; it adds a smoky sweetness. Serve these drumsticks with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. A mixed fruit salad with poppy seed dressing is a good complement.
