Asian Glazed Drumsticks Recipe
These Asian inspired drumsticks are finger lickin’ good! It’s hard to believe they are low in points (my husband kept asking me if they were WW friendly as he cleaned the bones!) The glaze would also be great with thighs or wings. I served this with steamed vegetables to make this a complete low fat meal and drizzled the remaining glaze over the vegetables. Also would be wonderful over rice. Thighs would also work great in this recipe, but chicken breast would get too tough. If you must, remove chicken breast after 15 minutes, then allow the sauce to reduce down.

8 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed
1 cup water
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp honey (or sugar)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp chives or scallions, chopped
1 tsp sesame seeds
In a heavy large saucepan, brown chicken on high for 3-4 minutes with a little spray oil. Add water, balsamic, soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, 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, turning chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze, you don’t want it to burn when it start becoming thick). Transfer chicken to a platter and pour sauce on top. Top with chives and sesame seeds and serve.
