Bacon-Wrapped Honey Mustard Drumsticks

This recipe is incredibly easy and only calls for a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand! I like to whip these out after a long day when I all I want to do is stick something in the oven, relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

There are so many variations of marinades/dips you can create for this recipe. Honey mustard is what we already had in the pantry, but a homemade BBQ, buffalo or teriyaki sauce would be just as delicious! And if you prefer the chicken without bacon or only have a few pieces leftover from the weekend (like us!), leave it off or wrap just a few of them for a special treat! 

Serve these with a simple salad, sweet potato fries, or just eat them by themselves. This is a meal that adults and kids will enjoy!
