This is a simple & cost friendly recipe. Chicken drumsticks with a slightly spicy apple glaze. Most ingredients will already be in your pantry.
My kids love it, my 3 year old especially; he cleans the bone-no joke.

Goes Well With: coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans
Wine and Drink Pairings:
12 Chicken drumsticks-skin on
1 12 oz can 100% apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp butter
Apple pie spice
Salt & Pepper
Sesame seeds (if desired)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Spray a baking pan with non stick pan spray. I use a broiler pan with the top so the chicken fat drips into the bottom of the pan.
Season chicken with apple pie spice, chili powder, salt & pepper. Turn chicken & season again. Place in oven & roast for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes turn & cook an additional 30 minutes.
Once chicken is in the oven begin the glaze.
Add all ingredients through lemon zest into a sauce pan. Place over medium high heat & bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer until reduced by at least half. Glaze should be slightly syrupy & coat the back of a spoon. Finish glaze with 1 Tbsp butter.
Transfer sauce to a large bowl. If using sesame seeds add to glaze in bowl. When chicken is done toss chicken in sauce. Transfer to a serving platter if desired & drizzle remaining sauce over chicken.
