Molasses Drumsticks with Soy Sauce

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 2 drumsticks

A tasty and different chicken dish to try.

Name: Amount:
lite soy sauce 0.25 cup
lime juice 2 Tbsp
chicken drumsticks, skin removed, rinsed, and patted dry 8
dark molasses 2 Tbsp

Stir the soy sauce and lime juice together in a small bowl until well blended. Place the drumsticks in a large zippered plastic bag. Add 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce mixture to the bag. Seal tightly and shake back and forth to coat chicken evenly.


Refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours, turning occasionally. Add the molasses to the remaining soy sauce mixture, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until needed.


Preheat broiler. Lightly coat the broiler rack and pan with nonstick cooking spray, place the drumsticks on the rack, and discard any marinade in the bag. Broil 6 inches away from the heat source for 25 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or until the drumsticks are no longer pink in the center. Place the drumsticks in a large bowl.


Stir the reserved soy sauce mixture and pour it over the drumsticks. Toss the drumsticks gently to coat evenly and let them stand 3 minutes to develop flavors. Serve immediately.
