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)
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!
