It happened!! We were running errands this past weekend and I had to turn the air on in the car! Weeeeee! OK, so I am a bit of a goofball, but I absolutely love summer. To me, summer is a few precious months I get to chill out and have fun with my family. Our summer is filled with hikes in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, swimming and lots of cooking on the grill. Whenever possible, we love to BBQ for ourselves as well as our neighbors and friends. And speaking of summer grilling and entertaining; I have a secret weapon. My Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks and the new colorful Rubbermaid products from Kroger.
My Favorite Summer Foods and Drinks
I know a lot of people enjoy grilling and munching on those chicken wings. I do not get it! Why waste your time on something with so little meat? Why not BBQ some nice chicken drumsticks for everyone? With my easy to make Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks and the pretty Calypso Coral or Lagoon Blue summer inspired Rubbermaid products from Kroger, my summer entertaining is brought to a new level. Whether I am cooking for just the four of us or the whole block, Kroger is my go to store for stocking up on my foods, beverages and other necessities. Here is a place to find more great Rubbermaid content.
When I saw the limited edition summertime colors in the Rubbermaid Pitcher, Party Platter, and Refill Reuse 20oz Bottles at my local Kroger, I had to grab all three! The Party Platter is perfect for my drumsticks, celery and carrots and it even has a container for our ranch dip! Because my Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks have a little kick to them, I always make a pitcher of strawberry lemonade. The kids love the fresh fruit I add to their favorite drink. What a refreshing beverage on those warm summer days and nights, right? When we are on the way to the park, the pool, on a hike in the mountains or even when I am at the gym, the Refill Reuse 20oz Bottles are absolutely perfect!
Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks
So, to make my popularly tasty Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks, all you need is a few ingredients. I am able to easily find what I need from my local Kroger. For the marinade, you need:
- 3 Pounds of chicken drumsticks
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
For the best results, I recommend marinating the drumsticks overnight. If you don’t have the time, try and keep them in a sealed container with the marinade for at least 2 hours. When we cook drumsticks or big chicken breasts on the grill, I will bake them in the oven at 400 for about 30 minutes. Then, take them out and transfer them to the grill for an additional 5-7 minutes on each side.
Serving Your Food Like A Boss
When you have your Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken Drumsticks made, transfer them into your Rubbermaid Party Platter (available in limited edition summer colors Calypso Coral and Lagoon Blue) from Kroger. I serve them with some celery and carrot sticks with some ranch dressing in the smaller, leak-proof inner container for dipping. I love the separate container from the Rubbermaid Party Platter for a dipping sauce, don’t you? And the ranch dressing really cools off the heat of the Sriracha chili sauce.
You are going to want to stock up on the Rubbermaid Party Platters. I am going to go back to Kroger and get another blue and two more in the coral. These lightweight two-in-one food containers are perfect for entertaining. The base of the Party Platter is divided, so it keeps your foods separate, which is great for my OCD husband and son! You can use them at home or for taking a dish to your next party, pot luck, church social or picnic. I think the Party Platters and the Refill Reuse 20oz Bottles are great for camping.
Why I LOVE Rubbermaid
As you would expect from Rubbermaid, the containers and bottles have lids with a tight seal. No spills for you! All of the pieces of the Rubbermaid products are BPA-free and are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe. The Rubbermaid Pitcher, in the two limited edition summer colors, has a three-position lid that turns for pouring freely, pouring with ice guard or closed. The large, comfortable handle makes it easy for lifting and pouring, even for the kids.
The finger loop on the Refill Reuse 20oz Bottles makes it super easy for the kids to carry, especially on those hikes in the woods. And because it fits in your standard cup holder in the car, you keep your hands free for more important things…like driving!
