My favorite mango habanero seasoning is Lawry’s (find it here), but there are many options available at your local grocery store or online.

You can even sub your favorite dry-rub here, so long as it’s low-carb and low in added sugars.

How do you make baked drumsticks “sticky?”

  1. First, dry your drumsticks completely with a paper towel, before cooking. Speaking of cooking, make sure the oven temperature is hot enough. This helps the drumsticks make a nice leathery coating on the outside.
  2. Secondly, spray your baking dish or foil-lined pan with a thin layer of non-stick spray (I used vegetable oil spray here).
  3. Cover your drumsticks with dry-rub and spray again. Next, you’ll want to cover them in dry-rub, then saturate the dry-rub with a layer of spray on top. Now, you’re drumsticks will have that nice sticky/tough top.
  4. Finally, repeat step 3 again half-way through, after flipping the drumsticks.
