INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 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

  • Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a zip-lock bag. Add chicken. Marinade overnight.
  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a medium-sized baking pan with aluminum foil and sprinkle the bottom of the pan with salt
  • Dump the contents of the bag (including the sauce) into the pan. Arrange the drumsticks so that they are not touching each other.
  • Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for forty-five minutes.
  • 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.
  • Remove from oven.
  • I always serve this with white rice, and pour the drippings from the chicken over the rice.
