Spicy Chicken Drumsticks

These originally were going to be Make it Paleo’s Buffalo Wings, but then the following happened…

1) Drumsticks are a lot cheaper than wings

2) I did not look closely at the recipe ingredients and figured, “Oh well buffalo sauce is red it must be tomato based”

Tomatoes are absolutely no part of this recipe....

3) I found this recipe and decided I could fan dangle some close relative to buffalo sauce with the tomato sauce and serranos I purchased.

The finished product ended up being quite tasty, but not quite of the Buffalo wing genre thus I give you…
