How do you feel about chicken? Do you prefer fried, baked or roasted? Which part do you like-breast, thigh, drumstick? I hate to say that I am quite picky when it comes to eating chicken. I only eat breast. I’ve been picky about chicken since I was little. No dark meat for me. I will eat it cooked all ways…I am definitely not picky about that!
I will prove that it started out as chicken…
The picture I am showing you is not pretty. Don’t get scared. Don’t unsubscribe to my blog, don’t stare in awe wondering if it’s some kind of mutant thing. It is chicken. The picture didn’t come out that great either…sorry!
This chicken was so good that I actually ate drumstick! It’s the first time I have ever eaten an entire drumstick. The flavor is amazing!
The meat just falls of the bones…I kind of like that! Don’t waste any of the sauce that might be left in the baking pan. Pour it all over the chicken too!
Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks
- 18 chicken wings or 10 drumsticks or 4 thighs and 5 drumsticks, etc.
- kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons oil — peanut, canola, vegetable, etc.
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup honey
- 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. If using wings: wash and dry, cut off wing tips and place on a rimmed baking sheet. If using the larger quantity of drumsticks and/or thighs: wash and dry and place in a 9X13-inch pan; if using the smaller quantity, wash and dry and place in a 8×8-inch (or something similar) pan. Season lightly with salt (soy sauce already has plenty of salt) and pepper to taste.
2. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Toss chicken (with your hands or with tongs, if you do) and then arrange skin-side down in the baking pan. Place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove pan, turn chicken over, and return to the oven for another 30 minutes. Remove pan and turn chicken over once more.
Enjoy and pleas, please lick your fingers!
