Chipotle Plum Drumsticks with Sweet Potato Wedges

Step up your grilled chicken game with these meaty drumsticks that are bathed in a naturally sweet plum sauce. Wedges of crispy sweet potato are a perfect sidekick. If feeding a big backyard crowd, you can easily double or triple the plum sauce, chicken and sweet potatoes. To allow the inside of the potato wedges to finish cooking before the outsides become completely charred, it’s best to parboil the potatoes in a pot of water just until slightly tender. If you have a large grill, you can cook the sweet potatoes and chicken at the same time. If not, cook the chicken and then cover to keep warm while you prepare the potato wedges.

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues.
