Sticky Asian BBQ Chicken Drumsticks + Giveaway!

Happy Friday! I’ve been feeling yucky these last few days AND to top it all off, I thought today was Saturday. Bummer. I hate when my mind plays tricks on me. I’ve also been having a super bad case of the mommy-brain which means I’m saying all sorts of crazy things. For example:

“Don’t open that! I don’t want to drink the fumes!” Umm….what?

My husband had a good laugh at that one. Then I punched him and all was right in the world.

Anyways, I made these amazing chicken drumsticks a few weeks ago and gave you a teaser photo on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter. You all hate it when I do that. Does it stop me? No. But in my defense, I had to wait to post this recipe because there’s a giveaway attached to it! Yes, a fun giveaway from Bonne Maman….you know, those French folks who make the stellarly awesome jams and jellies?  Ya, them! I’m not much of a toast + jam kind of person, but I certainly know how to whip one up in a certain recipe of the asian persuasion. With chicken drumsticks. Hint hint.

Do you know what I’m talking about?

Yes? No? Perhaps?

Oh you guys. It’s THIS recipe. 

For these sweet and spicy {and STICKY!} Asian BBQ Drumsticks, I fried up some chicken, made a bbq sauce with the Bonne Maman Golden Plum Mirabelle jam, glazed these bad boys like there was no tomorrow and baked it right on there until brown and sticky. They were perfection and I ate most of them before my husband and daughter got home from running errands one evening. I’m nice like that.

Anyways, you must make these because they are uber yummy and the pinnacle of umami. I just wanted to use the word Umami.

But they are amazing and should be made for your next party, football game or dinner party. Easy enough for everyday, but special enough for company. The printable is below and make sure to scroll down for the Bonne Maman giveaway!

Sticky Asian BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

For the Asian BBQ Sauce-
1 cup Bonne Maman Golden Plum Mirabelle Preserves
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon ground dried ginger
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
pepper, to taste

For the Chicken--
4 lbs. Chicken Drumsticks {about 10 medium}
salt and pepper, to taste
oil for frying {peanut, canola or vegetable oil}
sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions:

Pour 1 1/2 inches oil into a deep cast iron skillet or large pot and preheat oil to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients for Asian BBQ sauce. Cook over medium heat until it simmers lightly and dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low.

Rinse chicken drumsticks in water and pat dry with paper towels. You want the chicken to be very dry! Sprinkle with salt and pepper on all sides. Place half the chicken into the hot oil and cook 8 minutes per side or until browned and chicken registers 165 degrees internally with a thermometer. Remove to paper towel lined plate and cook the other half of the chicken. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Once all the chicken is cooked, place into large bowl and toss with half the prepared BBQ sauce. Place coated drumsticks onto parchment paper lined baking sheets and spoon over any remaining sauce from the bottom of the bowl. Bake 8-10 minutes or until browned and caramelized. Remove from oven, sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired and serve with remaining BBQ sauce from the pot.

Delicious with steamed veggies and rice, or just by themselves.

  28. hmmmmm….on a scale from one to ten? I think jam is about a 7. A 9 if it’s homemade. But then again I’ve never had Bonne Maman, so maybe they’ll change my mind…

  41. Yummm! Ii do love and use Bonne Maman Jams and Preserves and have used them for several years. The fig makes a great Fig Chutney sauce for pork. I have used plum jam for pork and chicken. Marmalade makes a fantastic grill bbq sauce on chicken.
    Thanks for the op to stock the pantry with some Bonne Maman Jams.
