Diet.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Skinless chicken drumsticks 2 Pound (8 Pieces)
  Grated lime peel 1 Teaspoon
  Lime juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Canned chopped green chili peppers 2 Ounce, undrained (1/2 Can)
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Ground cumin 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped fresh cilantro 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lime wedges 2
Directions

Cut 2 or 3 diagonal slashes in the fleshy part of each drumstick.
Place the drumsticks in a large bowl or glass baking dish.
In a measuring cup, combine the lime peel, lime juice, chile peppers, honey, garlic, cumin, oil, and salt until well-blended.
Pour over the drumsticks, rubbing the mixture into the meat and the slashes.
Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Coat a grill rack with cooking spray.
Preheat the grill to medium.
Remove the drumsticks from the marinade.
Bring the remaining marinade to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
Place the drumsticks on the grill and brush with the marinade.
Cover and grill, turning the drumsticks often, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 170°F and the juices run clear.
Place on a clean platter.
Sprinkle the drumsticks with the cilantro and drizzle with the juice from 2 or 3 lime wedges.
