  • 200g Carrots
  • 15ml Apple cider vinegar
  • 60ml Mayonnaise
  • 7g Honey
  • 8g Simply Smokin’ spices (sugar, paprika, salt, onion, cumin, coriander, mustard, sunflower oil, black pepper, cayenne pepper, smoked hickory flavour)

You will need:

  • Peeler
  • Sheet pan
  • Oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • Parchment paper



Prepare the chicken & vegetables

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Peel and halve the carrots lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Pat the chicken drumsticks dry with paper towel. In a large bowl, combine the chicken with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Toss to combine.


Roast the chicken & vegetables

On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes and carrots with a drizzle of oil; season with all but a pinch of the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken and arrange in a single, even layer. Transfer to the oven and roast, flipping halfway through, 30 to 35 minutes, until the potatoes are browned and tender when pierced with a fork and the chicken is cooked through.


Make the Alabama-style BBQ sauce

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey, as much apple cider vinegar as you’d like and 1 tsp water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Stir thoroughly to combine.


Plate your dish

Divide the roasted vegetables and chicken between your plates. Serve the Alabama-style BBQ sauce on the side. Bon appétit!
