If you love smoky and spicy flavors then this chipotle spiced chicken drumstick recipe will be right up your alley. I usually love light and fresh flavors like lemon and herb chicken however there are times when I need a little smokiness in my life. Chipotle spice is made from dried and smoked jalapeño chiles therefore it has a depth in flavor like no other. I have started to make a batch of drumsticks on Friday nights and love to keep them in the fridge so whenever we are hungry we can snack on them throughout the weekend. Not only is this a delicious snack, it is a much healthier option than a bag of chips.
These delicious drumsticks are seasoned with Chipotle spice, garlic powder and salt only, it is important to keep the seasoning simple so the chicken is not overpowered.
