Serves: 4-6

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a non-reactive dish large enough to fit all of the chicken drumsticks, whisk together vinegar, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Remove about 4 tablespoons of the marinade and reserve in a separate small container, covered in the refrigerator. Add the chicken to the large container, turning to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, up to overnight. Turn the chicken a few times during the marinating process.
  2. • When ready to cook, preheat a grill to medium. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting the excess drip off. Discard marinade. Grill until chicken is just cooked through, turning often to avoid over-charring. Toward the end of cooking, brush drumsticks with reserved “clean” marinade, creating a glaze. When done, the thickest part of the drumstick should register 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove to a platter to rest. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped parsley.
