Honey Sesame Finger Lickin' Chicken Drumsticks

Sometimes you luck out and trip upon a recipe that turns out so well that you know you are going to end up making it over and over and over again. Everyone loves it, there are no leftovers and the family actually thanks you for dinner. Yes. You heard me. Thanks you for dinner. Amazing. It sure the heck beats out the nights you hear, "Yuck. What's that? I don't like it!" before anyone even tucks in.

The beauty of this recipe is that you just throw together a few different sauces used in Asian cuisine along with some honey for sweetness then toss it with some chicken drumsticks. 20 minutes later, the house smells delicious and everyone is looking forward to dinner. You could make these with those cute little drumsticks  and wings too if you wanted to as well. And bite sized chicken pieces would work too. Just adjust the cooking time.

When you do try out this recipe, make some steamed rice to pour a little of the extra sauce over and some steamed snap or snow peas to go on the side. Oh, and these drumsticks are finger lickin' good so make sure you have wet clothes or a lemon hot water bowl to clean your fingers off! Enjoy!
