Teriyaki Glazed Drumsticks

So apparently there is this great American tradition that everyone loves to do on Sunday and Monday nights.  It’s called football- have you heard about it?

I am not a sports fan by any means, but I do love food.  I am definitely one of those people whose only interest in sports is the food that is eaten while watching.  Chips, dip, cracker, pretzels, wings- such good food is served with that background noise of a sports game.  This food becomes perfectly acceptable for dinner if you happen to be watching men run around a field with a ball on television.

This is a healthified version of chicken wings that can be enjoyed during a sports game guilt free. They are sticky, tender, and delicious.  Fantastic finger food and great served with summer rolls.

Adapted Slightly from Skinnytaste

Olive oil
16 drumsticks, skins removed
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup teriyaki sauce
3 tablespoons honey
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Sriracha
Sesame seeds, for topping


Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Coat with olive oil.  Brown chicken wings, about 5 minutes per side.  Pour balsamic vinegar, teriyaki sauce, honey, garlic, and Sriracha into pan.  Bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.  Remove cover and cook for an additional 8-10 minutes, until sauce is thickened.  Remove chicken from pan.  Pour remaining sauce over top.  Top with sesame seeds.
