Lemon Garlic Chicken Drumsticks Paleo

Grilling season is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. What is it about the grill that makes food taste SO much better? I think it’s the char and the smoky flavor that’s infused into the food that makes grill recipes so dang tasty.

So when the lovely folks at Cave Tools reached out to me to review one of their grill accessories, I of course said yes! I decided to go with their Chicken Wing & Leg Rack, because I love me some grilled meats, and I was intrigued by the idea of this convenient tool that can cook the meat and vegetables at the same time. Such a perfect opportunity to make these lemon garlic chicken drumsticks!

Here’s how it works. The stainless steel rack can hold up to 12 chicken legs or wings, and the tray on the bottom catches the oil drips, which makes it a perfect place to put some hardy vegetables while on the grill so they can be cooked in some delicious chicken fat. Kinda brilliant, right?

You can even use the rack in the oven, which I will try out the next time I’m cooking wings or drumsticks. For the drumsticks, I suggest you use ones that are a bit bigger in size because the base of the bone needs to be big enough to hook onto the loops of the rack.

Overall, I really liked it. Using the Cave Tools rack does take a bit longer for the chicken to cook on the grill than if you place them directly on the grill rack, because the Cave Tools rack elevates the chicken so they are farther away from the heat. However, on the plus side, I didn’t have to turn the drumsticks every few minutes. I just closed the lid and was able to do other chores without worrying about it, and it was done in 45 minutes, and the chicken came out juicy and crispy.

Also, I cooked brussels sprouts and potatoes on the tray with the chicken, and they came out so crispy and delicious as well.

One thing to note – if you have a smaller grill, you may not be able to close the lid. We do have a small, portable grill, and the  Chicken Wing & Leg Rack was too tall for me to close the lid fully, so I cooked with it slightly ajar. However, the lemon garlic chicken drumsticks still turned out moist and flavorful, and I highly recommend you try it out.

Don’t have a grill? Don’t worry, didn’t forget about you! Even without a grill, this rack will work wonderfully in the oven, and I even included in an oven method for this tangy, garlicky drumsticks in the directions below. Summer’s just around the corner, so I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe during barbecues and gatherings!

Pineapple Sriracha Drumsticks

Pineapple Sriracha Drumsticks

Guys… Mondays are SO much better when you get a good rest over the weekend (dur). If you are one my newsletter subscribers, you probably received my email last Friday about how I’m going to make an extra effort to practice true self care over the weekend, because that’s something I struggle with a lot. Having your own business and making your own hours, it can be difficult to actually have a weekend, but I took all day yesterday to sleep, watch Netflix, not be near my computer, and go on a nice long walk with my dogs. It was amazing.

So today, I’m all energized and refreshed to share a brand new recipe with you guys. And I promise, you are going to want to make these Pineapple Sriracha Drumsticks!

My family has been using sriracha sauce since I was young, so I’ve always been a fan. The combination of the spicy and sweet is so perfect, and my mom whipped up Asian meals often so it pretty much went well with all her cooking. These days, I don’t eat sriracha sauce often because the ingredients usually contain sugar and xanthan gum, but I do enjoy it on occasion because it’s so darn deliciously addicting. I especially love it with chicken or pork!

These Pineapple Sriracha Drumsticks came out even better than I expected. The chicken is so juicy, and the sauce is so flavorful and sticky that I regretted not making more. If you don’t think 2 tablespoons of sriracha sauce is spicy enough, you can add more but I think it’ll be fine as written because you’ll end up cooking down the sauce. I can handle spicy really well, and the sauce turned out perfect for my taste.

Are you a fan of spicy food? Then I really hope you make this because I think you’ll love it!
