honey balsamic chicken

i don't have too much to say about this except that sometimes a nice sticky sweet chicken sounds good.

honey balsamic chicken drumsticks


- 1/2 c balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 c honey
- 1/2 c light brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 c soy sauce
- 3 garlic cloves, mniced
- 12 chicken drumsticks
- 2 tbs sesame seeds
- 1/4 c parsley, chopped


1. in a bowl combine balsamic vinegar, sugar, honey, soy sauce and garlic and mix until honey is well blended
2. toss chicken drumsticks and marinade into a big ziplock bag
3. place in fridge to marinate for at least two hours (the longer the better)
4. preheat oven to 450 degrees F
5. place chicken drumsticks on a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet
6. bake until skin is caramelized (approx 30 mins)
7. while the chicken is baking, pour leftover marinade into a small saucepan
8. bring marinade to a boil then reduce heat to low to simmer until thick (approx 15 mins)
9. brush the cooked marinade onto the chicken and return to oven for 10 more mins
