    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    Zest and juice of 1 orange
    ⅓ c. Hy-Vee honey
    2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    1 clove(s) garlic, crushed
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
    8 chicken drumsticks (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    Hy-Vee Blue Ribbon chef seasoning, to taste
    1 orange, sliced
    Fresh parsley, for garnish


    1. In a medium bowl, combine orange zest and juice, honey, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt and black pepper. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag. Add drumsticks to marinade and toss to coat evenly. Marinate chicken in refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight, flipping bag occasionally to coat all drumsticks.
    2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove chicken from marinade and place on large rimmed baking pan; discard marinade. Season chicken with Hy-Vee Blue Ribbon seasoning. Arrange orange slices around chicken.
    3. Bake drumsticks 40 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees.
    4. Garnish chicken with parsley before serving.
