BBQ Chicken Drummies Recipe- What’s for Dinner Wednesday

Today we are going to have one of my favorites! Chicken. I love chicken, the kids love chicken, my husband won’t be here… so who cares what he likes? 

I am going to fire up the bbq and make my favorite chicken drummies! That is, if this weather ever goes away! It has been raining for what seems like an eternity and I don’t feel like floating away while I attempt to BBQ. That would just be silly. 

I love to do up some foil packets with these as well, and do all my sides on the BBQ. We love to BBQ asparagus, and baby potatoes are good too. Maybe a nice salad as well and you are good to go.

These drummies smell so mouthwatering while you are barbecuing them, that you will probably almost drool all over yourself. Well stop it! You will get to delve into the melt in your mouth chicken soon enough, but for now… for now you must COOK! 

This may be the last time I get to BBQ this season (although, I sure hope not), so I am going to enjoy every single little second of it! I will also be making my Best Ever Creamy Coleslaw to accompany this as well. YUM! I am already so excited, I can’t wait to eat! There are so many different things that I love on the BBQ, but these drummies really feel like an amazing treat!

    Chicken is my all time favorite, white or dark meat, I absolutely love it. Add barbecue sauce to it and it’s even better. This sounds so good. I’ll need to save this so I can try this next time I’m making bbq chicken!
