Honey-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

Tried a new recipe as you can see. These chicken drumsticks were mighty tasty. This recipe is from Steven Raichlen which I originally found in Food and Wine.
Here is the recipe...

CHINA-HONEY-GLAZED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS                                                          Servings: 6
Steven Raichlen Food & Wine Magazine June 2002
18 chicken drumsticks
¼ cup chopped cilantro
2¼ teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
2¼ teaspoons freshly ground pepper
Vegetable oil, for the grill
2¼ teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
6 tablespoons honey, warmed
4 garlic cloves, minced

1. Make 3 crosswise slashes down to the bone on the meaty part of each drumstick. Put the chicken in a large shallow baking dish.
2. In a bowl, mix the salt, pepper, five-spice powder, garlic and cilantro. Add the sesame oil; stir into a paste. Rub the paste in the slashes in the chicken and spread any remaining paste over the skin. Cover and
refrigerate for 2 hours.
3. Light a grill. Lightly oil the grate. Grill the chicken over a medium-hot fire, turning occasionally, for about 35 minutes, or until just cooked through. Brush the drumsticks with the honey and grill until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Serve hot.

I have been so busy I haven't been writing as usual, but so far I publish this article Role Model: Temperance Brennan of Bones. I also started reading The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien. 

I am also on Google+ Have you tried Google+ yet?
