Barbecue sauce for appetizer drumsticks

March madness will be here shortly, so it is time to bring out those terrific appetizer recipes for game nights.  This barbecue sauce is very easy to make on the spot.  No need to boil and cook this one for hours on the stove top.  This one is ready in minutes and can be applied to a variety of chicken pieces.  I used chicken drummies for appetizer size portions, but this recipe adapts to larger pieces of chicken as well.  Try the sauce with wings or drumsticks.

To begin:  Place the drummies on a foil lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray.  Mix this sauce while the oven is pre-heating to 450 degrees.


Combine 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper.  Brush over chicken and bake for 10 minutes. Turn and brush again and bake for another 5-10 minutes until chicken is done. If desired, these can be broiled for 1-3 minutes to make them extra crispy at the end of the cook time.

Serve as an appetizer with cut celery sticks and ranch dip on a bed of shredded lettuce.
