I can’t believe summer is almost over. School has started and college football is starting next week! While I am excited about football, I am still trying to hang on to every last bit of summer.

Prevent the Summer Cookout Burn
Now, I know what some of you are thinking – “These BBQ Pepper Jelly Chicken Drumsticks look delicious, but I can’t eat it because I’ll get heartburn.” I can totally relate! I’ve had run-ins with BAD heartburn, and it is the worst! It can totally ruin the day. Fortunately, I have a solution! The new Well at Walgreens Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets treat the same heartburn symptoms as Prilosec OTC ®, but since it’s a store brand, it’s more affordable!
I LOVE that these tablets just disintegrate in your mouth. Game changer! I hate swallowing pills, so Omeprazole ODT is perfect for me! It dissolves quickly on your tongue to provide heartburn relief for up to 24 hours. It has a nice strawberry flavor too.
If you’re suffering heartburn two or more days a week, I’d suggest looking into adding Omeprazole ODT to your routine. It’s a 14-day regimen, taking one dose every 24 hours, that can provide long-lasting relief. You should not take this medication for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by your doctor. Omeprazole ODT is not intended for immediate relief and may take 1-4 days to feel the full effect. You should not dissolve Omeprazole ODT in liquid or chew the tablets; just place on your tongue and allow to dissolve in your mouth.
How to Make BBQ Pepper Jelly Chicken Drumsticks
These BBQ Pepper Jelly Chicken Drumsticks are super simple to make. The drumsticks are marinated in a combination of Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce overnight. I put the drumsticks and marinade in a plastic storage bag and let it hang out in the refrigerator until we were ready to grill the chicken. We finished off the cooked drumsticks with a combination of pepper jelly and BBQ sauce. I just whisked the pepper jelly and BBQ sauce together and brushed that mixture over the chicken during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking. Serve any leftover sauce with the cooked chicken. I like to dunk my drumsticks in the extra sauce. YUM!
I used a garlic pepper jelly that I found at a local store. Any type of pepper jelly will work fine. My grocery store carries several types of pepper jelly. Save the leftover pepper jelly to serve over a block of cream cheese as an appetizer at your cookout. Double duty!
