1, then 2
tablespoons olive oil
3, then 1
teaspoons sea salt
teaspoons garlic powder
cup balsamic vinegar
tablespoon chopped chives
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Place drumsticks in a baking dish, drizzle with 1 TBSP olive oil and season with 3 tsp sea salt and garlic powder. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until your preferred crispiness.
- Slice the onion and halve the figs, removing the stems. When the drumsticks are cooking for the last 15-20 minutes, add the onion and 2 TBSP of olive oil to a saucepan on medium heat. Let the onions cook until they start to become translucent and wilted.
- Add the figs, balsamic vinegar, and 1 tsp sea salt. Turn the heat to medium-high so that the liquid bubbles becomes thicker. Stir a couple of times over a five-minute period. Chop the chives while the sauce is reducing.
- When the chicken is done, spoon the contents of the fig sauce over the drumsticks and sprinkle the chives on top, and serve.
