Chicken Drumstick Recipes – Honey Balsamic Glazed Chicken
Balsamic Chicken Drumsticks. Here’s a recipe where chicken drumsticks and thighs are the star attraction with a deep, honey glaze that has a twist of tangy balsamic vinegar. These sweet and tangy drumsticks are sure to be a favorite on your dinner menu.
To make this dish you’ll need: fresh skinless chicken thighs, fresh chicken drumsticks, vegetable oil, black pepper, chopped garlic cloves, tomato paste, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, honey, and green onion tops – thinly sliced.
In a large skillet, heat up 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add in 6 pieces of fresh chicken thighs and 6 pieces of fresh chicken drumsticks. Sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon of black pepper over all chicken. Cook chicken, while turning frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until chicken is slightly brown on all sides.
Remove chicken from the pan and drain off the excess oil. Add 3 cloves of chopped garlic to the pan and sauté over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of tomato paste, and slowly add in 1/2 cup of chicken broth. With a wooden spoon or spatula, scrape bits clinging to the bottom of the pan.
Increase the heat to medium-high and add in 2/3 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey. Boil rapidly for 3 minutes to reduce the liquid to approximately 1 cup.
Return the chicken to the pan and reduce heat to medium. Cook chicken, turning occasionally, for about 30 minutes or until the liquid in the pan thickens and reaches a dark mahogany glaze consistency. Internal juices from the chicken should run clear.
Remove chicken from the pan and place on a serving platter. Pour glaze over chicken and sprinkle 4 tablespoons of thinly sliced green onion tops over chicken pieces.
Makes 4 servings.
