Asian Glazed Drumsticks

Asian Glazed Drumsticks
These Asian inspired drumsticks are finger lickin' good! It's hard to believe they are low in points (my husband kept asking me if they were WW friendly as he cleaned the bones!) The glaze would also be great with thighs or wings. I served this with steamed vegetables to make this a complete low fat meal and drizzled the remaining glaze over the vegetables. Have you tried Sriracha hot sauce (the one with the rooster on the bottle)?

Magic Sauce Recipe I call this the magic sauce recipe. In part, because it makes everything it touches shimmer with deliciousness. It's magic like that. Technically, it's a riff on a chimichurri sauce - one that veered off the rails in a big way. Much tweaking has rendered it a distant second cousin. Let's just start by putting one thing out there. It's as versatile as a black dress. - More Herb Recipes - - More Paprika Recipes - - More Quick Recipes - 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves 2 teaspoons sweet paprika 2 medium cloves of garlic, smashed into a paste 1 well-crumbled bay leaf pinch of red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon + fine grain sea salt 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Gently warm the olive oil over medium-low heat in a skillet or pan, until it is just hot.

Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings Recipe Monday, January 4, 2010 This recipe for Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings is a must-try. If I could, I’d duct tape it front and center on my favorite recipes list. These, along with Momofuku’s Chicken Wings make me a very happy girl.

Chicken teriyaki I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember and in certain periods of my life I did not have much time to spend in the kitchen – I needed delicious yet quick meals for weeknights. On my days as a single lady I used to make lots of pasta – both my dad and my sister are crazy for it and dinner would be on the table in less than half an hour. Recently I’ve been trying my hand at Asian recipes and some of them are absolutely delicious – and equally fast. This chicken teriyaki is a great example: it has instantly become a favorite of my husband’s – a.k.a. "the picky eater" – and it took me moments to put it together. Let me tell you something: if my husband liked it, picky people everywhere will probably like it, too. Chicken teriyaki slightly adapted from the wonderful Nigella Kitchen In a bowl large enough to hold all the chicken pieces, mix together the sake, mirin, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, spring onions and sesame oil.

Photograph by Andrew Mccaul Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets Chunks of all white meat chicken breasts coated in breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese then baked until golden. An easy chicken recipe your whole family will love. What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Kids love finger foods or anything you can eat with toothpicks so when my daughter was young I would make her a dish of bite sized goodies she liked such as tomatoes, olives, pasta, etc. and served them with toothpicks and she always cleaned her plate! Once I'm in breading mode I usually make breaded zucchini sticks as well and bake them all at the same time along with some pasta and a salad for a complete meal. Double these for more or make half for less servings.

Sweet Potato Garlic Knots for the Narcs | Kohler Created Because we were in St. Louis all day Saturday, I didn’t get around to making these until early Sunday afternoon. If you know us in real life you know that we live in an interestingly diverse neighborhood. So as I was trying to play Susie Homemaker in the kitchen, Neil was out trying to take advantage of the seasonally warm weather and get our dying, unkept yard cleaned up. I just want to state for the record that we are not assholes. Nope. Fire trucks came blazing down the street, prompting the rest of our neighbors to spill out onto their lawns. Luckily we had these Sweet Potato Garlic Knots to keep us company. Ingredients 1 cup warm water 1 envelope active dry yeast 2 tablespoons honey (or agave nectar) ½ cup sweet potato puree (canned or fresh) 2 tablespoons olive oil (I used an herbed variety) 1 ½ teaspoons coarse kosher salt 3 ½ cups unbleached bread flour (I used ½ bread flour, ½ whole wheat flour) For the drizzle: 3-4 cloves garlic, minced 1/3 cup olive oil Directions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
