Prep Time: 45 Minutes.
Cooking Time: 3 Hours.

INGREDIENTS:

1/3 cup honey
2 tsp orange zest
2 tbsp orange juice
3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari sauce (See Note**).

3 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
12 medium size chicken drumsticks (3 to 3-1/2 lbs), skin removed (See Tip*)
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS:

1. Combine honey, orange zest, orange juice, soy sauce (or tamari), garlic, ginger, vinegar and crushed red pepper in a small bowl.

2. Coat a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add in drumsticks, pour in the sauce and mix to coat. Cover and cook until an instant-read thermometer registers 165° F. when inserted into the thickest part of the meat without touching bone, 2 to 3 hours on HIGH or 4 hours on LOW.

3. Transfer the drumsticks to a bowl. Very carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a medium size skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until reduced and syrupy, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour the sauce over the drumsticks; stir to coat. Serve sprinkled with cilantro and sesame seeds.

TIP*:
To remove the skin from chicken drumsticks, grip the skin from the meaty end of the drumstick with a paper towel and pull down toward the exposed bone until it comes off completely.

NOTE**:
Tamari is a Japanese soy sauce which is more flavorful than regular soy sauce and is also gluten free.

YIELD: 6 Servings.
Serving Size: 2 per serving.
