  • 2 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • ¼ cup fresh cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cotija cheese crumbled
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  • ½ cup Sysco Classic frozen roasted sweet corn kernels
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro chopped


    step 1

    Place drumsticks in a single layer on a wire cooling rack. Place the rack in a baking sheet and take the sheet in the refrigerator to fully dry the drumsticks for 2-3 hours.

    step 2

    Preheat the oven to 425℉.

    step 3

    Pat the moisture on the drumsticks dry with kitchen paper. Brush chicken drumsticks with cooking oil and season with chipotle powder, salt, and black pepper.

    step 4

    Put the drumsticks on the grill and bake in the oven for about 40 mins. Turning after 25 mins, then turning again after 35 mins.

    step 5

    Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a medium bowl, combine cream, mayonnaise, lime zest, lime juice, cheese, paprika, salt, and black pepper; stir to combine, then transfer to a squeeze bottle.

    step 6

    When the internal temperature of the drumsticks reaches 165℉, stop baking. Take out the drumsticks and put them on a plate.

    step 7

    Squeeze the prepared sauce over each drumstick and sprinkle with garlic, sweet corn and cilantro. Enjoy.
