Chicken drumsticks are always a hit at our kitchen table. During grilling season we usually turn to bbq sauce, but this time I was on the hunt for an Asian dish. I wish I had read thru the entire recipe early in the day and noticed that it was recommended to marinade the chicken for at least 8 hours. Despite the fact that it only had 2.5 hours in the marinade mix, these drumsticks came out really tasty. We will try this recipe as directed to see how it turns out.
Asian Grilled Drumsticks
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup sesame oil
2 tbsp garlic, minced
2 tbsp ginger, minced
2 tsp dried chili pepper flakes
2 green onions, chopped
10 chicken drumsticks
1/4 cup peanut oil
Whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and pepper.
Add the green onions.
Put drumsticks in a large zip lock bag. I find it helpful to fold the the edges of the bag down to keep the seal clean. Then pour in the marinade and seal bag.
I reserved half the marinade for basting
Refrigerate for a miniumum of 8 hours, turning occasionally.
I did not read this part prior to making the recipe so our chicken only marinaded for 2.5 hours.
Remove chicken and discard the marinade. Place chicken on a baking sheet, pat dry with paper towel
Rub the drumsticks with peanut oil on all sides
Season chicken with seasoned salt
(this step could easily be omitted)
Grill turning chicken until crispy golden brown and cooked thoroughly.
