Asian Glazed Drumsticks

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 medium chicken drumsticks
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs ginger, minced
  • 2 tbsp chives, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds


Remove the skin from the drumsticks. This is actually really easy if you use a paper towel in each hand to grasp the drumstick and the skin.

Spray a dutch oven or heavy pot with olive oil and heat on high. Cook chicken, turning occasionally, until browned, about 4-6 minutes.

Add water, vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce, sugar, garlic and ginger to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until chicken is just cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Remove lid, increase heat to high and return sauce to a boil. Reduce, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick and sticky, about 8-10 minutes. Turn chicken regularly and be careful not to let the glaze burn.

Serve chicken coated with sauce. Garnish with chives and sesame seeds.
