Easy Sticky Honey Sesame Drumsticks

I'm always looking for an easy dinner to make for my boys, especially now that we are into the hot days of summer (record breaking heat wave last week!).  I saw this recipe in Canadian Living, and figured I needed to give it a try.  I did modify it to suit my plans - here is the recipe:

Easy Sticky Honey Sesame Drumsticks (source: Canadian Living, August 2013)
Easy Sticky Honey Sesame Chicken | Addicted to Recipes

8-10 chicken drumsticks
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
6 cloves garlic, minced
Sesame seeds (for garnish)
Green onions, sliced (for garnish)

In a bowl, whisk together the honey, sesame oil and soy sauce,  Add in the minced garlic and whisk again.  Pour the mixture into a resealable bag, add the chicken.  Seal the bag and put into the refrigerator.  Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 2 hours.  I put ours together in the morning and let sit in the marinade all day.

Preheat oven to 400F.  Line a baking dish (parchment paper or tin foil) and place the chicken in the dish.  Pour the marinade over the chicken.  Place in oven and bake for abut 25 minutes (or until the chicken juice runs clear).  When done, remove from oven, put chicken onto a serving dish, garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.  Serve and enjoy!

This is an EASY recipe, perfect for hot summer days (as long as you have a/c in the house!).  The flavour is nice, and the drumsticks are a beautiful golden colour when cooked.  We enjoyed these, and will make them again!


  1. It looks delicious. My son would love these. Thanks for letting me visit.

  2. I love the sound of this recipe. It sounds super easy to put together and I think my kids would love it. I think I may try this recipe with wings and drumettes! Thanks for sharing.

  3. My wife made something similar once, it wasnt bad but not my cup of tea...

  4. These look amazing. We are a chicken only household in regards to meat protein and I love new ideas to shake it up a bit. My lo would love these along with me. Would pair wonderful with my homemade bread and homemade pasta.

  5. Good thing the recipe is easy because with the exception of the sesame seeds and chicken (in leg form), I have everyone of those ingredients in my fridge/pantry right now! Wonderful. Though I don't have chicken "legs", I do have thigh meat that I'm sure will do just as well.

    And now I'm hungry. ha

  6. These looks delicious! I know what I'm gonna make next weekend

  7. I'm always looking for quick easy recipes for chicken and I already have all the ingredients. I would probably marinade the drums in the morning before work and then be ready to go for dinner.
