Course: Main Course
Servings: 6 people
Ingredients

Turkey Drummettes:

  • 8-12 medium sized turkey drummettes
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Mango Chili Lime Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
Instructions

For mango sauce:

  1. Blend all ingredients using a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.  Season with extra Sriracha if you prefer a spicier sauce.

For drummettes:

  1. Season turkey drummettes with salt and pepper to taste.  Sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika.

  2. Grill over low to medium heat until cooked through, 20-25 minutes.  Cook until a meat thermometer registers 165°F (74°C) in the thickest part of the meat. (Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ)

  3. Divide the mango sauce in half.  Using one half, baste the turkey every 5 minutes in the last 15 minutes of cooking, approximately 3 times.  Discard any remaining sauce that was used for basting.

  4. Once cooked, remove the drummettes from heat and let rest for 5-10 minutes.  Once the drummettes are cooled, brush generously with the remaining mango sauce.  

  5. Serve with any leftover sauce on the side.

Recipe Notes

TIP: You can change up the flavour of this sauce to suit your family’s taste by adding more Sriracha for a spicier sauce, or adding some honey for a sweeter sauce.  These drums make a great lunch the next day, served at room temperature with a little sauce on the side for dipping.
