Indonesian Style Chicken Drummies

Indonesian Style Chicken Drummies

Great spring barbecue recipe, with a twist. Definitely has some spice, but is still very tasty if you decide not to use the chili pepper.


  • 1/3 cup Hoisin Sauce can be found in Asian food section at any grocery store
  • 2 tbsp Lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Peanut oil can use vegetable oil
  • 3 Garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Long red chili pepper seeded and finely chopped (can be left out if avoiding spice)
  • 1 tsp Ground turmeric
  • 12 Chicken drumsticks
  • 1/4 cup Roasted peanuts roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Cucumber halved and sliced on a bias
  • Lime wedges and extra sliced red chili for garnish


  • For Marinade, add first six ingredients to mason jar. Shake to combine, and set aside.
  • Using a sharp knife, score chicken drumsticks 2-3 times in the thickest part. Place chicken into a large ziplock bag. Add marinade, seal and toss to combine. Chill for at least 15 minutes and up to 6 hours.
  • Bring your barbecue grill to medium heat and making sure the grill is oiled. Grill chicken, turning occasionally and basting with any remaining marinade for 25-30 minutes until charred and cooked through to 165 degrees.
  • Sprinkle chicken with roasted peanuts, cucumber slices, and extra sliced red chili (if using). Serve with lime wedges.
