This dish was inspired by really unhealthy sweet sticky chicken that everyone loves. But why does it have to be bad for you and make you feel sick after? It doesn’t! Try this recipe that doesn’t have any flour, MSG, ketchup, BBQ sauce or any of the other garbage that is usually in those recipes! It also happens to taste much better!!!
Ingredients for 4 servings:
10 chicken drumsticks (legs)
1/2 teaspoon salt (pink Himalayan)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tomato (finely chopped)
10 cloves garlic (smashed with a knife but not peeled)
1/2 red chili pepper (chopped)
1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon liquid smoke (natural flavoring)
1 oranges (juiced)
1/2 cup chives (chopped)
(1)Prepare a large saute pan or dutch oven on high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and get hot. Add pieces of chicken and sear for 8 minutes on each side.
(2)Add the rest of the ingredients except the chives and turn the flame down to medium. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, mixing periodically, until it becomes a glaze. The garlic will fall out of its casing! Serve hot.
Notes & Tips:
Natural smokey flavoring comes in a bottle usually in the vinegar section of the supermarket or in specialty spice shops. I use the brand colgin but you can use any you find. I promise it makes the biggest and best difference in this dish!
