ingredients

  • 2 lbs - 900 g chicken drumsticks (about 6 large drumsticks)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • the zest of 1/2 lemon (= peel of 1/2 lemon chopped very thinly)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 to 2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and chopped very thinly (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Add chicken and brown, about one minute on each side. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, reduce to medium-low heat, cover with a lid and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until no longer pink inside (cooking time will vary depending on the drumsticks' size so start checking after around 15 minutes).
  2. While chicken is cooking, mix together in a medium bowl honey, water, ginger, cumin and flakes.
  3. When chicken is almost done, pour honey-lemon mixture over drumsticks. Bring to a boil and cook until glaze becomes thick and glossy, about 3 minutes, stirring constantly to cover chicken. Top with cilantro leaves and serve with a green salad, stir-fry veggies and/or grains like rice or pasta if you eat them. Drumsticks are also good eaten cold.
