My friend at Live and Learn-Toss and Turn asked me about the sticky drumsticks on our menu this week, so I thought I would share a recipe with you today.
They are really easy and even my picky kids usually lick their fingers.
YOU WILL NEED:
8-10 chicken drumsticks (skinned preferably)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 tsp.ginger (I use ground because that's what I have but fresh would taste even better)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced (use fresh, not the canned stuff. It just tastes so much better!!)
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. paprika
a pinch of black pepper
Mix all of the ingredients together. Combine chicken with prepared marinade in a large plastic food storage bag. Press air out of bag. Turn bag over a few times to coat all of the drumsticks well. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Overnight is even better.
Heat your oven to 375 F. Line your 9x13 baking dish with aluminum foil. Add drumsticks with marinade to the dish. Bake for 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of your drumsticks). Then put on broil for another 5 to brown them.
Serve with mashed potatoes (I made garlic red potatoes tonight) or rice.
I told you it's easy. And yummy too :)
