Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 40 Min
Ready In: 50 Min
- 8 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed
- Olive oil spray
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey (or sugar)
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (more or less to taste)
- 2 tablespoons 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, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and hot sauce 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. Turn chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze so it won't burn when it starts thickening.)
- Transfer chicken to a platter and pour sauce on top. Top with chives and sesame seeds and serve.
