Gordon Ramsay’s Sticky Baked Chicken Drumsticks

This delicious recipe comes from the Chef’s book, Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite. Gordon also cooked this dish on The Rachael Ray show in front of a live audience,  teaching Rachael a thing or two about cooking. [1]

These drumsticks are super easy to prepare and cook, so don’t hesitate to whip up a batch for dinner or company. Gordon says they taste just as good the next day, so you might want to double or triple the recipe if you like left-overs.

Ingredients for Chicken:

  • Chicken Drumsticks, 10
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper

Ingredients for Glaze:

  • Rice Wine Vinegar, 3 Tsp
  • Lemon Juice, from 1 1/2 lemons
  • Fish Sauce, 3 Tbsp
  • Honey, 6 Tbsp
  • Sesame Oil, 4 tsp
  • Soy Sauce, 4 tsp

Cooking Instructions:

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat drumsticks with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Arrange drumsticks in a single layer in a casserole dish, and bake for about 20 minutes. Prepare the chicken glaze while the drumsticks are cooking. Making the glaze itself is super easy. Just mix all of the glaze ingredients together, and it’s prepared!

Remove the Chicken Drumsticks from the oven after about 20 minutes and coat with the glaze. Return to oven and bake for another 20-30 minutes until nicely browned. Make sure to turn the chicken a few times during this part of the cooking.

Remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy.

Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal

A warm, creamy bowl of pumpkin spiced oatmeal is a great way to start your morning! High in fiber and heart healthy whole grains, this breakfast will fill you up and keep you satisfied until lunch.

I love the convenience of overnight oats in a jar[1], but today I was craving a warm bowl of oatmeal just like Mom used to make. She made the best oatmeal when I was a kid, it was so creamy (made with whole milk) and she always cooked it with cinnamon sticks.

I tried to replicate the creaminess using a blend of almond milk and water to keep it light and the results were wonderful. Topped it with homemade pumpkin butter[2], skinny pumpkin granola[3] and a pinch more cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice… heavenly!

If you’ve made pumpkin granola, it’s the perfect topping to add a little crunch. If not, you can top it with a few dried cranberries and chopped pecans or pepitas. Enjoy!
