Crispy and juicy BBQ chicken drumsticks served over vegetable fried rice

Nothing says summer like firing up the BBQ. And marinated chicken drumsticks grilled on the BBQ are SO tasty! The skin can get deliciously crispy, and the chicken nice and juicy. You have to try this honey sriracha and soy sauce marinade, its absolutely full of flavour!

Laura loves to buy new kitchen gadgets and this chicken leg roaster is pretty awesome! The stainless steel rack can be placed right on the BBQ and allows you to roast chicken drumsticks upright which means you don’t have to keep rotating them. It also prevents the chicken from sitting in a pool of its own juices and it’s nice and easy to carry in and out. This was the second time we have used it and it did not disappoint.

Next time we’ll be testing it to make some BBQ jalapeno poppers! So look out for that recipe in the near future.

Back to the chicken – it’s sweet, savory, and a little bit spicy. You can prepare this ahead of time which makes it a really easy meal to throw together and the chicken really soaks up the flavour of this marinade.

It’s also the perfect match for this vegetable fried rice. I love letting the rice sit in the hot pan for a few minutes so you get some nice crispy bits at the bottom! The great thing about this rice is that you can substitute in any vegetables you like and it tastes really good the next day for leftovers.
