I've had a bottle of sesame oil in the cupboard for a while (still good) and had been looking for recipes to use it in! one night when the weather was warm but not too warm to make BBQ'ng against the law I remembered the simple but delicious looking chicken drumstick recipe I'd been wanting to try. despite the fact they stuck to the grill & the skin came off :( they still tasted good & yes I'll work on the sticking bit! I'm sending this to Ruth's Bookmarked Recipes this week hosted by Siri.
10 - 70 minutes
Ingredients (serves 4)1/2 cup (125 ml) salt-reduced soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
cracked black pepper
900g chicken drummettes
- Place soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, sweet chilli sauce and pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Preheat a barbecue grill to medium-high heat. Drain chicken from the marinade (reserving marinade) and place on the grill. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through, turning regularly and basting with the remaining marinade.
- Remove drummettes from heat, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
