  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

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

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I usually cook the chicken 10 to 15 minutes longer to thicken the sauce. I like to pair this with mashed potatoes and drizzle a bit of the chicken sauce onto the potatoes. Also amazing with any seasoned rice.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made this for the family last night and we all loved it! The only change I made was to some garlic to the sauce and doubled the recipe. Delicious!

I don't understand getting a 'mixture' when your adding so much liquid to the recipe. I pretty much had a sauce after I combined all the ingredients. The water definitely didn't help.

Husband and his friends said it was "delicious." Made for the first time, only thing I changed was not to add the water. Put half the sauce on for first 30 min & then turned the chicken & adde...

Just tried this tonight and it was great. I changed up the cooking process though due to time. I pan-fried the chicken drumsticks in garlic and onion for 15 minutes, then poured the sauce into t...

Having been Chicago residents for a long time (my husband is a lifer, I'm going on 25 years) we are loyal to the local sauce that first made it's debut at the Taste of Chicago about 25 years ago...

The sauce is not a sauce after you add the water. The water is not necessary and actually thins the sauce to a broth. My instinct said to omit it. Wish I had listened to my instinct! It will...

Awesome recipe! I did uncover the chicken half way just to allow the sauce to evaporate/thicken a little but it was fantastic. The meat was falling off the bone. So tender. This will be a regula...
