oven bbq chicken

Mix the following ingredients together in a small bowl until a paste is formed:
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tbsp of chili powder
1 tsp paprika
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
pinch of cayenne pepper

Roll about 5 chicken drumsticks in the bowl, covering each with the spice paste.  If you want to make more drumsticks or chicken wings, just double the paste recipe.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.  (If you remember to refrigerate for 2 hours that is perfect, but one time I forgot to make ahead of time and they still turned out delicious!)

Turn oven to Broil and place a rack about 10 inches from the broiler element.  Line a baking sheet with foil and place the chicken on the sheet.  Broil for 10 minutes, turning occasionally so everything cooks evenly.  

While you are waiting... eat a handful of these:
or you could make your own barbecue sauce while you wait instead of doing it the simple way...

Remove the pan and baste the meat all over with barbeque sauce (your favorite kind or make some from the recipe {here}).  Cook for about 10 more minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has browned lightly.  Eat immediately J
