    Apple Honey Drumsticks

    • 12 skin-on chicken drumsticks
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 cups apple juice
    • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • Grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Put the drumsticks on the rack and season both sides generously with salt and pepper. Bake 30 minutes; flip the drumsticks and continue baking until golden and crisp, about 30 more minutes.

    Meanwhile, make the sauce: Bring the apple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt to a high simmer in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the sauce is syrupy and coats the back of a spoon, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside until the chicken is done.

    Stir the sesame seeds into the sauce, if using, and warm over medium heat, if necessary. Transfer the chicken to a large bowl. Add the sauce and butter and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the chicken to a platter and drizzle with any remaining sauce from the bowl.
