    Chef #1276163's Note:

    Kids and adults alike seem to love this recipe! My mother, who is Chinese, always made chicken this way. Now that I'm an adult, I make it this way too. It's simple, easy, and always turns out delicious. It's a big hit with company!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    drumsti ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Marinade

    • 6 tablespoons dark soy sauce
    • 6 tablespoons oyster sauce (Lee Kum Chee is the best brand. I buy mine in bulk at an oriental market)
    • 4 tablespoons orange juice
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons cooking sherry
    • 2 tablespoons pancake syrup (while it may seem bizarre, this is the most important ingredient. The syrup caramelizes as the chick)
    • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic

    Meat

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a zip-lock bag. Add chicken. Marinade overnight.
    2. 2
      Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
    3. 3
      Line a medium-sized baking pan with aluminum foil and sprinkle the bottom of the pan with salt
    4. 4
      Dump the contents of the bag (including the sauce) into the pan. Arrange the drumsticks so that they are not touching each other.
    5. 5
      Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for forty-five minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove the top layer of foil and turn the chicken over. Bake for an additional fifteen to twenty minutes, until the top of the chicken is nicely browned.
    7. 7
      Remove from oven.
    8. 8
      I always serve this with white rice, and pour the drippings from the chicken over the rice.

      Delicious! I used boneless chicken breasts because my husband dislikes dark meat but I want to try this someday with drumsticks, too.
