Sesame Oil Baked Chicken

“This is one of my  favorite chicken recipes!”  I can’t help it. I like chicken! I like it even more now that I get it from a local farm a few miles from my home. I like knowing that I play a part in supporting small sustainable farms. I like chicken –roasted, baked, grilled, stewed, and in every other cooking method under the sun. This recipe is easy and perfect for a quick dinner, baking up a batch of  drumsticks covered in a delicious, simple mixture of sesame oil, honey, and soy sauce couldn’t be easier.


  • 1/2 low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 sesame oil
  • 1/2 organic local honey
  • 1 tbs grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or garlic-pressed
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Fuji apple, grated
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbs of Sriracha


Place all ingredients in a large ziploc bag including the drumsticks and let them marinade for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed cookie sheet or baking dish with parchment paper. Place chicken on sheet, sprinkle with pepper, and bake for 15 minutes.

Pull chicken out of the oven and pour sauce on top. Continue baking for another 15 minutes. For the last 3 minutes, place chicken under broiler on top rack, so it gets golden and crispy looking.

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in
    your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Many thanks
