⅓ c. raw honey

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
a small handful of fresh parsley leaves, chopped as garnish
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste (about ⅛-1/4 tsp each)

Step 2: Using paper towels, pat dry the chicken drumsticks.
Step 3: Into the prepared dish, place the chicken drumsticks and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Step 4: Place the mustard (Dijon mustard and whole grain Dijon mustard), honey, paprika and garlic, and onion powder in a small bowl. Mix well until combined. Over the chicken, pour the sauce and gently toss to coat.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F. If you want to crisp up the chicken and get a nice glaze on top, broil for 2 to 3 minutes.
