SWEET AND SPICY ASIAN CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

Posted: February 3, 2022 in Uncategorized

Sweet and spicy is my favorite Asian flavor combination for chicken. This time around, I had a couple of packs of drumsticks and I thought I’d substitute the usual sweet ingredient, honey, for maple syrup. It was delicious!

Soy sauce
8 medium size chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon Chinese chili garlic sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Pre-heat the oven to 350.

Place the drumsticks on a baking pan and sprinkle them with the soy sauce, making sure you rub the sauce into all parts of the chicken. Let them marinate for 10 minutes.

To make the brush-on marinade, in a bowl, combine the hoisin, maple syrup, chili garlic sauce and sesame oil. Pour off any extra soy sauce from the pan into the bowl and mix well.

Once the oven is hot, brush the drumsticks on all sides with the marinade. Bake the chicken for 30 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the oven, brush again with any leftover marinade, and return the chicken to the oven for 15 more minutes.

Mighty tasty!
