Hot & Sweet!

Tonight I attempted to make this!  Hot & Sweet Drumsticks!  But... without the drumsticks.  :oP  The Husband is not a fan of drumsticks so I just put it over chicken breasts.  And halved the recipe since there is only 2 of us... and we don't need to serve 6.

This is the orginal recipe for Hot & Sweet Drumsticks, from Tasty Kitchen from the awesome* Pioneer Woman.

  • 1 cup Apricot Preserves
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce
  • 3 pounds Drumsticks (about 12)
Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. In a small saucepan, combine preserves, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until preserves are melted. 

Arrange drumsticks in a single layer on a 13 x 9″ baking pan. Pour sauce over drumsticks, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done, spooning sauce over drumsticks while baking. Serves 6.

Mine turned out like this:

Hot & Sweet chicken w/ sweet potato fries, green beans & corn

Less charred, roasty-toasty lookin' and more... jam-like I guess.  :oT  I guess-concluded that the chicken to sauce ratio was a little off.   But it was still tasty.  :]

* The Pioneer Woman is awesome because I am almost done reading her epic love story, "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" of how she met her now-husband, whom she calls The Marlboro Man (even though he doesn't smoke.  He's really just a cowboy.)  It's pretty long (and over many blog posts).  Though here's a put-together version of Chapter 1 to XXXI, which would've saved me a lot of grief of clicking around had I found it before I did it the "old-fashioned" way and clicked through each and every blog post.  >_<  After that chapter, go HERE to patch together the rest of the story.  It's really not that complicated, I promise.  Only read it if you want to read about a girl gush over her cowboy man for like most of the story.  :oD


On a completely unrelated note, Lukas VanDyke, a SoCal based photog is giving away a nifty Nano iPod with multi-touch!  Until I read his blog post I did not know they had touch Nanos now.  Good job caveman me  :-D  But it looks pretty cool!  Go to his blog post here to read all about it!
