Honey Soy Baked Chicken Drumsticks



Honey Soy Baked Chicken Drumsticks



Honey and soy chicken drumsticks baked in an incredible honey, soy and garlic sauce. Tender, falling from the bone, absolutely delicious chicken!


Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves, pressed or grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced for garnish (optional)
  • 4 pounds chicken drumsticks (about 12 drumsticks)


Instructions
  1. In a large zip top bag, combine the garlic, ginger, oil, soy sauce, honey and ground black pepper. I massage the bottom of the bag to make sure the honey blends well with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Place the chicken drumsticks into the zip top bag, close and shake the bag to make sure all the chicken pieces get coated with the marinade. I like to massage the chicken a bit just to make sure the marinade penetrates every piece of chicken. Marinate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Place the chicken in a single layer on a baking pan or rimmed baking sheet (the marinade leftover in the bag can also be placed on the baking pan).
  5. Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes or until cooked through. Enjoy your dinner!
