chicken drumsticks

Apricot glazed chicken drumsticks

For a sweet and sticky snack that makes a nice change try these, they are a bit like sweet and sour, just a whole lot simpler. Weekend sticky snacks at their best I tell you. You can also serve these with egg fried rice as a meal for 4, they are simply delicious.

What you need

1 kg drumsticks (here we used the wing drumettes)
1 packet insant brown onion soup
250ml chicken stock
4 tablespoons smooth apricot jam

The process

Mix the chicken stock, dry onion soup and apricot jam together thoroughly.

Add the drumsticks and ensure that they are all coated well.

Allow to marinade for about 20 minutes while you heat the oven to 200 celsius.

Place the drumsticks in an oven proof dish, pour the remaining sauce over the top and bake for 30-40 minutes until cooked through.

Check on them periodically and give them a shuffle to ensure that the sauce does not brown too much on top.

Dig in.
