A sweet Tangy Chicken Dish

Posted by admin | Poultry,Recipes | Wednesday 28 October 2009 7:58 am

My brother and his family came for dinner and I’m pretty thrilled at how this dish turned out, mainly because I made it off the top of my head, just based on how I thought a dish like this should taste. It actually tasted great too, and looked a lot better than the picture below 🙂 (Lousy phone camera)

1 kg Chicken drumsticks
1 1/2 cup honey
1 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 onions
1 tablespoon garlic paste
1 large carrot
1 small green capsicum
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Salt to taste
Oil

PREPARATIONS
Mix together all the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, the chili powder, garlic paste and 1 cup honey in a large bowl.
Make small cuts all over the chicken and marinate in the mixture. 20 minutes is the bare minimum but I actually remembered to do this ahead for a change, covered and kept it a whole 7 hours in the refrigerator. I think it made a difference.

Slice the onions fine and long and fry them to turn golden brown. Remove half and set aside.

Add the marinated chicken, leaving behind any juices that have leaked, and fry in the existing oil.
After about 7-10 minutes, having checked that each piece has been turned and fried both sides, add all the juices of the marinade. At most add 1 cup of water. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, and try to resist adding any more liquid.

Meanwhile slice the carrots and capsicum long and narrow. Put the carrots in salt water to boil – I did them for 5 minutes in the microwave. About 10 minutes into the chicken cooking, add the capsicum. You can add this as late as you want, depending on how crispy you like them, I don’t!

Roast the sesame seeds on a skillet till the start popping and jumping, shouldn’t take more than a minute, careful not to burn them.

When the chicken is almost done; because I’d marinated that long it didn’t take me much more than 20 minutes, add the carrots without the water, stir.
Now add the remaining 1/2 cup of honey and fried onions, and try not to stir too much or you’ll loose the lovely honey glaze.

Serve garnished with sesame seeds and coriander leaves or parsley.
