Eating (and blogging) in a hurry... Finger Lickin' Chicken

Some days we're tight for time before we have something to do.  Tonight was like that.  So it was easy to cook, easy to eat. But super yummy. 

We had Finger Lickin' Chicken.  I got the original recipe HERE.  I used drumsticks, because they're good, they're easy and they come in a pack where I don't have to seperate them from the thighs.

They were definately finger lickin' good!

Chicken drumsticks (My package had 7.)
1 TBSP Olive oil
4 garlic cloves
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp red chili flake
1/4 cup sugar

In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the chicken, skin side down.   Cook 5 minutes, then flip for 2 more.

Take out the chicken and let it hang out on a plate while you make the sauce.

Add garlic to the pan.  Let it get all yummy smelling, then add the vinegar, soy sauce, chili flake and sugar.  Stir it and bring it to a boil. 

 Return the chicken to the pan, skin side up.

Reduce heat to low, cook for 15 minutes.

Turn the heat up to meduim so the sauce can reduce.  Cook another 10 minutes.

Serve the chicken over rice or quinoa and don't forget to spoon that yummy sauce over the whole thing!

Enjoy!  We sure did!
