Honey-Soy Chicken Drumsticks

My son loves Asian food so I went in search of an Asian inspired chicken drumstick recipe. I found one Very Culinary that sounded perfect and it used ingredients I had on hand – I love that. It look minutes to throw the marinade together and the chicken smelled fantastic while it baked. It was a big hit with all of us – the chicken turned out moist, tender, and very flavorful. My son most definitely approved of this dish!

Combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger together in a large zip lock bag. Add the chicken drumsticks to the bag and seal. Place into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil then coat with cooking spray.

Lay chicken on the baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a cooked through. Brush the remaining marinade over the chicken every 10 minutes.

Sprinkle some fresh cilantro, sesame seeds, and green onions on top and serve with Garlic Rice with Green Onions and Cilantro.

    Do you think these would be ok with bone -in chicken thighs? That’s all I have and I really want to try this recipe. Thanks

      I think thighs would work really well. You may need to cook them a bit longer.

      Cheers,

        Thanks for your reply. I made these last night with the thighs. I cooked about 5 min longer. I did remove most of the skin to keep it healthier, I left a flap so it would still brown nicely. Anyway, these were soooooooooooo good! My whole family enjoyed them. I ate the leftovers today and they were even better. Thanks for all your recipes!!I make so many of them as regulars!

        Diane,

        I am so glad they worked out! I think I’ll be trying thighs next time. Thanks for your kind words and for being a loyal reader.

        Cheers,
        Pam
