Baked Chicken Drumettes

Chicken Drumettes are great for a party or gathering of foodies with an appetite for finger food.  These are easy to prepare and absolutely delicious.  They offer a Thai twist on the classic "wings" your guests will find everywhere else. This recipe was developed by Watcharee Limanon, a Thai culinary artist trained in Bangkok. She trained at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School in Bangkok.  There were so many requests for Watcharee's traditional Thai recipes that she created her own line of spectacular sauces.  You will love this recipe!


  • 2 pounds chicken drumettes
  • 1 1/4 cup Watcharee's Pad Thai Sauce
  • 1 cup deep fried crispy shallots (available in Asian Grocery Stores)
  • 1/4 cup rice bran oil (or other healthy oil)


  1. Marinate chicken drumettes in 1-cup Watcharee's Pad Thai Sauce for 30-minutes in refrigerator. Reserve 1/4 cup Watcharee's sauce to drizzle drumettes before serving
  2. Preheat the oven to 450-degrees
  3. Remove the chicken drumettes from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature before cooking. Heat grill pan on medium heat for 3-5 minutes to prevent sticking and brush pan with oil. Grill chicken drumettes until brown crispy stripes form on each side
  4. Bake marinated chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with oil for 30-35 minutes until the skin is caramelized and the chicken is cooked through
  5. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup Watcharee's Pad Thai Sauce over drumettes before serving and sprinkle with crispy shallots
