    Chef Buggsy Mate's Note:

    I decided to try my hand at "Ready Set Cook". I chose 5 ingredients off the list, and this is what I came up with. Serve it over rice and you have a very tasty meal. I hope you all enjoy. Please Note: Prep time does not include marination time needed for chicken.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      With your potato peeler peel a portion of skin off of the ginger. Continue to peel strips of the cream flesh of the ginger until you have approximately 1/8 cup. If desired, you can take a knife and cut the ginger into smaller pieces at this point. My family happens to like ginger, so I leave it in long strips. Place remaining ginger in a freezer bag and place in freezer for later use.
    2. 2
      Add the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, fresh ginger, sesame seeds, spring onions, and red pepper flakes to a gallon sized ziplock bag and give it a shake to combine.
    3. 3
      Place chicken drumsticks into bag and seal. Place bag in the refrigerator and allow chicken to marinade for a minimum of 4 hours.
    4. 4
      Once chicken has marinated, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Carefully remove chicken from bag and set marinade aside. Do Not discard.
    5. 5
      Place chicken on a greased baking sheet. Cook legs 15 minutes at 400 degrees then flip and cook an additional 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      While chicken is in the oven, cook rice if desired; according to package directions.
    7. 7
      During the last 15 minutes of cooking the chicken, pour oil into a wok or large skillet and heat over high heat. When oil is good and hot, add the sliced mushrooms, snow pea pods, and water chestnuts and quickly stir-fry until snow peas are crisp tender. Remove vegetables to a plate and set aside.
    8. 8
      Turn the heat down on on your wok or pan and add the marinade sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook approximately 5 minutes. Add vegetables, and chicken drumsticks to the sauce and give a quick stir to coat all ingredients.
    9. 9
      Spoon vegetables and sauce over rice and top each serving with two drumsticks.

      Full disclosure: I only made the chicken portion of this recipe as I didn't have the veggies on hand. I prepared only half the amount of the marinade and had more than enough to marinate 8 jumbo drumsticks. The marinade is spicy, sweet, sassy, and a keeper. I loved the flavors & the tip on cutting ginger in a totally new way. I boiled the marinade & used it to glaze the chicken as it baked. The legs were large & took about an hour. The small amount of sauce was drizzled over rice and left us wishing for more. Thank you for your entry & good luck in the contest! :-)
