Total time
This is like an Asian barbeque sauce
Recipe type: Appetizer or Main
Serves: 3
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 4 tbsp tamarind puree (available at Asian and Indian markets)
  • juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 tsp Sriracha hot sauce (available at Asian markets) or other hot sauce
  • 3 tbsp Tamari or soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp Brown Rice Syrup (honey may be substituted)
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Take each drumstick and cut around the bone by the base of the drum part. Remove all skin and cartilage so you are left with the ball of meat and a clean bone handle.
  2. Mix all ingredients and marinate the drumsticks for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure they are fully coated.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Best cooked on a cast iron griddle, lightly oiled, that is preheated in the oven. Cook through, turning once.
