Finger lickin' spicy chicken

Finger lickin' spicy barbecue chicken | The World of Suzy Homemaker @SuzyHomemakerUK

It's July and the sun is shining. That can mean only one thing...

It's Barbecue season! Whoop! Yay for al fresco dining!! (Even though Beloved hates it.)

If you're planning a barbie this weekend, I have the perfect recipe for you. More aptly named "Nicki's Kickin' Chicken" (try saying THAT after a few margaritas!), I shamelessly stole this dish from my friend Nicola who served it during a girlie get-together for the final of Ultimate Big Brother #UBB.

Don't judge me.

There are no Weight Watchers points for this recipe because you absolutely MUST make it with full fat, skin-on chicken drummers and oil. It's just not the same otherwise!

Personally, I prefer my spicy chicken straight from the BBQ. But if the British weather intervenes, you can always bake this in the oven. We've done both. In fact, these drummers are delicious at any time time of the year. They're so easy to make, we even throw them together when we're one of our cabin holidays.

Either way, they are best eaten HOT!

How mouthwatering are they?


How to make (Nicki's) Finger Lickin' Spicy Chicken

Serves: 1 ha ha ha ha ha ha! I wish! Oh alright... I SUPPOSE 12 drummers will feed up to 6 people if you're catering for 2 per person, but you might consider 3 if your friends are piggies like me! ;-)

Cooking Time: 30 minutes (maybe a little longer on the barbecue)


Pack of chicken drumsticks, skin on. (Can also be used with thighs)

Olive, vegetable or sunflower oil

1 tbsp Chinese Five Spice

1 tbsp crushed black pepper


  • Fire up the barbecue OR pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
  • Grab 2 plates
  • Unpack your drummers onto one plate and on the other, roughly mix together the Five Spice and pepper

This is where it gets messy!

  • Pour some oil into your hands and rub each drumstick until coated, then rub the chicken with the Five Spice and pepper rub
  • Coat really well
  • Whack your drummers on the barbecue* or pop 'em in an oven-proof dish and slam in the centre of your pre-heated oven for 30 minutes
  • Serve immediately
  • Enjoy!

No, I mean, REALLY enjoy!

A hui hou,



* If you're cooking this recipe on the barbecue, PLEASE make sure your chicken is completely cooked through - I don't want you blaming me for food poisoning! 

Cook your chicken slowly, turning regularly until the juices run clear (stick it with a skewer or a knife to check).

Try not to barbecue right on top of the flames, or you run the risk of serving food that's burnt on the outside and raw on the inside.

    For a bit of extra spice, you can also add Shwartz Spicy Season All xx
