I'm always drawn to a recipe that has 'easy' in the title. This three ingredient Easy Chili Chicken from Food.com is perfect for outdoor cooking because you can prepare the chicken at home, pop the zip lock bag in your cooler and cook it at your destination. You don't even have to marinate the chicken at all, you can mix it and bake it right away but if you do let it sit in the marmalade mixture, the flavors will be more intense. The chicken baked in my 12 inch dutch oven with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom and 28 briquettes spaced evenly on the lid. Lining your oven with parchment or foil will definitely make clean up easier. These juicy drumsticks are sweet, spicy and with all the ingredients costing less than six dollars, extremely economical.
