Drumsticks with Spicy Plum Glaze

Leave a comment

Another from the files of ‘we had it when we were away’ this was sweet and spicy with a good hot kick from the tabasco. This was also pre-prepared and frozen in its marinade for the trip. The original recipe was a from a very old microwave book but I altered it for the oven a bit, cooking meat in the microwave is still not something I’m really comfortable with although I have done it and been plenty pleased with the results on occasion. It was great in the oven though and took no work at all on the day, always a plus for the holidays!


Drumsticks with Spicy Plum Glaze
Serves 3

1/2 cup plum sauce
1 tablespoon light soya sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1 teaspoon oil
2 teaspoons sugar
6 chicken drumsticks

Combine sauces, sherry, oil and sugar in a large bowl with chicken, cover, marinate in refrigerator several hours or overnight.
Place chicken and marinade in oven pans and place in a 180C oven.
Cook for 45 mins or until cooked through.
Thicken marinade with cornflour and water if necessary (I didn’t)
Serve with rice.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
