  • Preparation

  1. Place Maple Leaf Prime®drumsticks, DIANA® Gourmet Rib & Chicken BBQ Sauce and Cajun spice in a large zip lock bag. Massage chicken in bag well to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 24 hours to marinate.
  2. Preheat one side of the grill to medium high heat. Prepare a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
  3. Using tongs place chicken drumsticks onto the grill shaking away any residual marinade.
  4. Grill each side for 3 to 4 minutes. Place chicken onto baking sheet and place on side of the grill that has not been heated. Keep heat on opposite side of grill on.
  5. Close lid and cook on residual heat for about 15 to 18 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached.
  6. Brush chicken with remaining DIANA® Gourmet Rib & Chicken BBQ Sauce and sprinkle with chopped onion. Serve with ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.
