Spicy Sticky Baked Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

 8-10 chicken drumsticks
 Drizzle of Oil

 1/2 cup light Soy sauce
 2 garlic cloves, crushed
 Juice of 1 Orange + zest

For the glaze:
 4 Tbs. Honey
 4 Tbs. Asian Chili Sauce /such as sriracha, or gochujang...
4 Tbs. Chicken stock/Beef or vegetable as a sub.
Light soy sauce to taste
 2 Tbs. Lemon or Lime juice
A drizzle sesame oil and garnish with sesame seeds

In a large Ziploc bag place the chicken drumsticks. You can remove the skin if desired.
Pour in the soy sauce and drop in the crushed and peeled garlic, you can mince it if you wish, for little kick and sweetness throw in the juice of 1 orange, and zest of 1 orange. Close the bag.
Massage the chicken drumsticks with all the marinade for a few seconds to coat everything. Put aside and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 200C. Lightly oil a large baking dish. Season the drumsticks with salt and pepper and arrange in the dish in a single layer. Drizzle over a little olive oil and bake in the hot oven for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the glaze. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until evenly combined, season it with soy sauce to taste.
Take the chicken out of the oven and pour the glaze over each drumstick. Turn down the heat to 190C. Return to the oven and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, turning several times, until the chicken is tender, sticky and nicely glazed.
Serve it with your favourite side and enjoy.
