This is what I made for my family recently. A tribute meal to celebrate Oktoberfest!
- Honey Chicken Drumsticks (goes with the hendl theme although the recipe is more Thai than German…Lol.)
A tad healthier but still very hearty… My mom really enjoyed this dish.
I got this recipe “Drumsticks with Peach and Honey” from IrvineHouseWife at allrecipes.com
I modified the recipe to fit in with what I have at home, but it tasted awesome nevertheless…
- 1 teaspoons butter (non-salted Irish butter from Trader Joe’s (TJ’s))
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 6 chicken drumsticks (organic free range chicken from TJ’s)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (sea salt)
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 2 leeks sliced (organic leeks from farmer’s market)
- 5 teaspoons honey (local honey: San Francisco Golden Gate Honey – Grade A; unfiltered; Beekeeper: Peter Sinton)
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce (Kikkoman)
- 1 cup water
- 1 lime, thinly sliced (from yard)
Directions (I followed the direction from IrvineHouseWife’s recipe )
- Heat 1 teaspoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat
- Stir in the garlic, and cook for a minute
- Season the chicken with salt, and add to the skillet
- Cook until the chicken has browned on all sides, about 15 minutes
- When the drumsticks have browned, remove, and set aside
- Melt the remaining 1 teaspoon butter in the skillet, and stir in the sliced leeks. Cook and stir until the leeks begins to soften, then stir in the honey, soy sauce, and 1 cup of water.
- Return the drumsticks to the skillet, and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the lime slices on top of chicken, cover with a lid, and simmer until the drumsticks are tender and no longer pink at the bone, about 15 minutes.
- Once the drumsticks is done, remove and serve.
ENJOY with your favorite brewski(es)!!! (or Sweet Tea since it was really hot here lately!)
