This fast, family-friendly meal is packed with summertime flavor. Spicy, tangy chicken drumsticks are slow cooked until tender alongside sweet, creamy corn; together they are a winning combination. A premade barbecue spice rub streamlines this recipe, but you can also make one at home by combining 1 ¼ tsp brown sugar, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (you can omit the cayenne if you don’t want the chicken too spicy). Want to make your own BBQ sauce too? Our How-To Guide has three different types for every palate.
BBQ Chicken Drumsticks with Creamed Corn
- 3 lbs chicken drumsticks, about 7-8 pieces
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 ½ tbsp barbecue spice rub
- 1 lb corn kernels, fresh or frozen
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 tsp sugar
Rub chicken drumsticks all over with barbecue spice rub and 1 tsp salt (you may want to omit the salt if your premade spice rub is particularly salty). Place drumsticks in a Suvie pan and cover with barbecue sauce.
In a separate Suvie pan, stir together the corn, butter, milk, sugar, and ½ tsp salt.
Place chicken in the top zone of your Suvie and corn in the bottom zone. Input settings, and cook now or schedule.
Suvie Cook Settings
Bottom Zone: Slow Cook Low, 2 hours
Top Zone: Slow Cook Low, 2 Hours
Remove pans from your Suvie. Pour barbeque sauce into a bowl, return pan to your Suvie, and broil chicken for 8 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking.
Stir corn and season to taste with salt and pepper. If desired, puree half the corn mixture in a blender or food processor until creamy, and then recombine with remaining corn. Divide chicken and corn between plates. Serve extra barbeque sauce on the side.
