Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Level: Easy
Yield: 12 drumsticks

Ingredients:

Chicken

  • 1 package fresh chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon smoked paprika

Truffle Ranch

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup truffle oil
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your Wolf Charbroiler or outdoor grill to highest heat.
  2. Begin to cut the meat and skin off the lower half of your drumsticks. This will mostly be skin and fat, there should be very little meat being cut from the bone.
  3. Once all your drumsticks resemble lollipops, (meat on the top with a clean bone below), season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika.
  4. Individually wrap each of the bones in tinfoil so they do not burn on the grill.
  5. Preheat your Wolf oven to a medium broil.
  6. Oil your grill and place your drumsticks on the grill for about 3 minutes per side.
  7. Place each charred drum onto a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and transfer to your oven.
  8. While your chicken broils for 5 minutes, mix your truffle ranch!
  9. Combine all ranch ingredients and mix well.
  10. Once your chicken is done, remove from the oven and carefully remove the tinfoil from each bone.
  11. Serve your chicken with a bowl of truffle ranch and watch them disappear as quickly as you put them down!

 *Chef Tips*

  • We like to double the ranch recipe so we can use it to dress our salads, as well!
  • If you have a rack to place on your sheet tray, we recommend using it to keep the chicken crispy in the oven!
