Asian Style Balsamic Glazed Drumsticks

These Asian inspired drumsticks would also be great using chicken thighs or wings.  We suggest serving with steamed vegetables to make a complete low fat meal.  You can drizzle the remaining glaze over the vegetables, or over rice.


  • 8 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 cup water
  • I tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1/3 cup PastamorĂ© Barrel-Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoon chives or scallions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

In a heavy large saucepan, brown chicken on high for 3-4 minutes with a little spray oil. Add water, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and Sriracha and cook on high until liquid comes to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for about 20 minutes.  Remove cover and bring heat to high, allowing sauce to reduce down, about 8-10 minutes, until it becomes thick, turning chicken occasionally.

Keep an eye on glaze, you don't want it to burn when it starts becoming thick.  Transfer chicken to a platter and ladle sauce on top. Sprinkle with chives and sesame seeds.

Serves 4.
