Honey Garlic Soy Sauce Chicken Drumsticks
I found this amazingly sounding and looking recipe the other day @ The Gourmand Mom, and I needed no more pushing to head straight to the chicken drumsticks section at the store. Luckily I had all other necessary ingredients at home, and decided to squeeze in preparing this dish before going to work in the morning, to have quality lunch later in the office.
Honey Garlic Chicken Drumsticks
6-8 chicken drumsticks
3 tablespoons butter (I had only around 1.5 tbsp, it was also enough 🙂 )
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1. To prepare the sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the soy sauce, honey, parsley, and crushed red pepper. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, as desired. Set aside to cool slightly.
2. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the chicken drumsticks in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour the honey garlic sauce over the drumsticks. Roll the drumsticks in the sauce to coat all sides. Bake for about 40-45 minutes.
I prepared some brown rice to accompany the drumsticks with, yummy! (In my opinion at least, the chicken was a tad too sweet for my Mr and he definitely does not like brown rice LOL! No worries fellows, I made up to him later by preparing stuffed zucchini boats – he does love those 😉 I’ll post the recipe for them soon as well.)
