What do you do when you’re home with three little tiny humans and snowed in? If you’re anything like me, you will cook and bake all day. On the first day of spring, we were greeted close to 2 feet of snow. SNOW. On the first day of SPRING. As happy as I was to see the ground covered in white, I was not looking forward to cleaning it up. The kiddos came from all directions asking for food, drinks, and activities for the day.
Needless to say, they were pretty darn happy they did not have to go to school. So, I took advantage of the moment and wrote down multiple recipes to help us make it through the day.
Our day started with Chicken Frittata for breakfast. Soon after, the kiddos lounged while I prepared lunch. And honey, lunch was my quick and easy succulent, juicy 4 Ingredient Chutney BBQ Chicken with steamed cabbage and mixed bell peppers.
I’m talking about Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Juicy chicken drumsticks. Chutney with BBQ sauce. Sweet and savory all in one in one easy electric skillet recipe.
Chicken legs drumsticks cooked to perfection with a hint of salt and pepper to taste, then garnished with parsley flakes.
To be honest, when I put the drumsticks out the freezer, I had no idea what I was going to cook. Luckily, I still had a jar of chutney sauce in the pantry to create this chutney BBQ sauce to cover these delicious chicken legs.

How and why you should prepare the 4 Ingredient Chutney BBQ Chicken
I absolutely love this chutney BBQ chicken mainly because of how simple it is to make. It goes well with any side dish. It is finger licking food!
The process is easy. Prep time takes about 10 minutes.
- A couple minutes to prepare the BBQ chutney sauce (set aside when done),
- and a few more minutes to wash the chicken.
By the way, I always wash my chicken or any meat with distilled white vinegar. I am from Haiti, and Haiti is HOT. Which means most foods are prone to bacteria while seating in the hot sun on the street market. We always defer to white vinegar and lemon/lime. Though I have been in the states for years, I’ve kept the same cleaning method as it applies to cleaning meat.
Once the 8 chicken legs are thoroughly washed, paper dry the chicken legs drumsticks, lightly season with salt and pepper. Allow it to cook for 25 minutes. Add the chutney BBQ sauce during the last 10 minutes to enjoy your delicious BBQ chutney chicken.
