  • Large bowl
  • grill grate or oven
  • Sharp chef's knife
  • Aluminum foil
  • Paper towels
  • Pastry brush
  • Sheet pan
  • Baking pan


  • 6 chicken legs
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash and pat the drumsticks dry with paper towels. Place in large bowl.
  • "French" the chicken drumsticks until you have exposed bones. Move on to the next step if you don't plan to "French" the drumsticks.
  • Brush with any sauce you like. I used a soy sauce based Korean BBQ sauce. I actually just dipped my drumsticks in a small bowl of sauce. CAUTION: Do not reuse this sauce since it was in contact with raw chicken. Use fresh sauce for basting during cooking.
  • Arrange the lollipop pieces in a baking pan. Cover the bone with foil if desired. Add a couple of garlic cloves and a cut lemon if desired.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. If you like crispy skin, remove the drumsticks from the baking pan and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Bastes generously with sauce.
  • Return to oven for 10-15 minutes turning pan midway to ensure even browning.
  • The internal temperature of the meat should be at ;east 165 degrees.
  • Plate with the bottom of the drumstick down. Best eaten hot!
