Honey Glazed Drumsticks
The kids won't be the only ones licking their fingers! This is such a good recipe and again you can incorporate anything you like. I used Agave Nectar & Honey. Brittany my daughter loved this one! Great left-over as an after school snack too!
1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Cup Honey (Immune System Booster, Anti-Oxidant & Anti-Bacterial Properties)
2 Tablespoons Organic Molasses unsulphured (a good source of Potassium, Calcium & Iron)
1/2 Cup Turbinado Raw Sugar
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
5 Fresh Rosemary Sprigs (Potent Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Agent)
5 Garlic Coves, halved (Anti-Oxidant and Anti-Bacterial Agent)
10 to 12 Organic Chicken Drumsticks
2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds
1/4 Cup Flat-Leaf Parsley Leaves
Combine all ingredients in ziplock bag, dissolve the honey & brown sugar. Add chicken to bag and seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Remove chicken from bag, reserve marinade. Arrange chicken on baking sheet. Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to boil, the reduce heat to a simmer and cook over low heat until thick, about 15 minutes. Use a pastry brush to baste chicken. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and chopped parsley, and serve! Bon Appétit!
