Spicy Orange Glazed Drumsticks

Amazing new recipe, courtesy of Mom (as always). This is SO simple, and SO tasty.

Spicy Orange Glazed Drumsticks

1/4 cup of orange marmalade

1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (it’s a little jar, sold in the politically correct “Asian” section of the food store)

4-8 chicken drumsticks (my package came with 6)

Salt and pepper

Heat the oven to 400 degrees (please make sure it’s empty before you do that), and in a small bowl, mix the marmalade and chili garlic sauce

Rinse your chicken, and place it in your handy-dandy disposable roasting pan (see previous recipe for info)

Season your chicken with salt and pepper

Cook the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes, brush your glaze over your chicken and cook for another 10 minutes

Test your chicken by piercing it with a knife- if the juice runs clear, you’re good to go. If unsure, cut the chicken. I’m paranoid, so I always cut it.

Guys, two words- frozen vegetables. They are the best thing known to man.

I bought one block of frozen spinach as a side for this chicken, because it is healthy. I could have gone with corn dogs, like I wanted, but I chose spinach. You should, too.

1 block of frozen spinach
Olive oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed

Take frozen block of spinach

Fill a sauce pan with about 2 inches of water

Place frozen block of spinach in water, and let that ad boy defrost.

You’ll occasionally need to take a fork or something and break up the frozen chunks, but THAT’S IT. After about 15 mins, you will have spinach.

Drain the water from the spinach, and place it in a bowl

Throw the crushed garlic into the spinach, drizzle with olive oil, and toss. DONE. And delicious.

Enjoy, guys!
