I got this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis at Food Network show. I always love to watch how she introduce each ingredient and she always teach you step by step how to prepare each meal.

Chicken drumettes are always one of my family favorite. These drumettes is so yummy and is really a WOW to my family. Here I would like to share the recipe with all my friends and anyone who visit my blog.


1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup honey ( I used Organic Honey for more pure taste )
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
5 sprigs of rosemary
5 garlic cloves, halved
10 to 12 chicken drumettes from the chicken wings
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley ( Italian parsley )


Combine the balsamic, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves in a large resealable plastic bag. Shake and squeeze the contents of the bag to dissolve the honey and the brown sugar. Add the chicken drumettes to the bag and seal with as little air as possible in the bag. Place in the refrigerator and marinade for 2 hours.

Preheat the oven for 450 F.

Place the chicken drumettes on a non-stick foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, about 30 to 35 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the marinate liquid in a small saucepan. Bring to boil ( in order to kill the bacteria ). Reduce the heat to simmer and cook over low heat until thick, about 15 minutes. Reserve on the side.

Use a pastry brush to brush some of the reserved cooked marinate sauce on the chicken drumettes. Place the chicken drumettes on a serving platterand sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and the chopped parsley.

Cook's note from Giada : I like the rosemary and garlic flavors in the background.
Brushing the
cooked drumettes with the reduced marinade helps
the flavors along.
Also, re-moistening helps the parsley and the
sesame seeds to adhere.
