Another recipe inspired by Ree Drummond. A word of caution: though I toned down the “hot” in these drumsticks, they’re still pretty heated. And delicious. Did I mention they’re easy?

Easy Asian Hot Drumsticks

12 drumsticks

3/4 cup plum jelly

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp ground ginger

4 tbsp minced red onion

1 tbsp red pepper flakes

2 tbsp minced jalapenos

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2) In large baking pan, bake drumsticks 10 minutes each side (20 minutes total); crank up oven to broil and cook drumsticks 3-4 minutes on each side (6-8 minutes total) to crisp up skin

3) While drumsticks are doing their thing in the oven, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat mix plum jelly, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, ground ginger, red onion, red pepper flakes, and jalapenos; bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cook 15 minutes or until sauce just begins to thicken; remove from heat

4) Remove drumsticks from oven; reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees; drain fat from drumsticks; pour sauce over drumsticks in baking pan; turn each drumstick to coat; return drumsticks to oven and bake 15 minutes; remove from oven

5) Plate drumsticks (a dish with a lip is a good idea) and spoon sauce over top

6) Eat ’em up! Yes, you will…with a tall glass of iced water 🙂
