Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 40 Min
Ready In: 50 Min

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 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


Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.)
  3. Transfer chicken to a platter and pour sauce on top. Top with chives and sesame seeds and serve.
