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.
