Honey-Sesame Chicken

This recipe turned out really well. It is a twist on the same-old, inexpensive cut, chicken drumsticks. Both my husband and I agreed it was very similar in flavor to Chinese takeout we have had in the past. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did!

Honey-Sesame Chicken
1.5 lb Chicken Drumsticks (about 6 drumsticks)
2 Tbsp Honey
2 Cloves of Garlic
4 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Avocado Oil (or another mild flavored oil)
3 Tbsp Coconut Aminos
1 Tbsp Dried Minced Onion
1/4 tsp salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
Red Pepper Flake
Sesame Seeds

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium size bowl, combine all ingredients except chicken and sesame seeds.  
Place chicken into a broiler safe baking dish. (I didn't do this, and ended up having to transfer it before broiling. Save yourself some dishes and do it from the start ;-))

Pour prepared sauce over chicken in the pan and ensure all the pieces are coated completely. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes remove from the oven and carefully roll chicken around in the sauce to re-coat all the sides. Place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until the juices run clear. Remove from the oven, roll them around to re-coat, and place the oven broiler on low. 
Sprinkle chicken with sesame seeds and place in the broiler for 3-5 minutes till nicely crisped.
