Japanese Chicken Drumsticks

Japanese Chicken Wings Drumsticks

Serves 6
Serve with basmati rice

The original recipe uses chicken wings, but as we had drumsticks in the freezer, we used those -- to yummy success.

12 large chicken drumsticks, with skin

Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
 Bake at 375 F about 30 minutes, until mostly done.

When cool enough to handle, remove the skin, toss away.
With a fork, remove meat from bones* and put into baking dish or dutch oven.

While chicken is baking,
make the sauce in a saucepan:

  2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white or rice vinegar
1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/8 tsp black pepper

Cook sauce over medium heat until mixture thickens.

Then pour over chicken. 
Bake about 30 minutes at 375 F, uncovered 

*Save the leg bones to make soup stock another day.
