green onion chicken drumsticks

  • 2 green onions, thinly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon, chili sauce (or hot sauce!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clementine, juice + zest
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 8 chicken legs
  • to garnish: white + black sesame seeds, chopped peanuts, green onions
  1. in a gallon zip lock bag, combine all of the ingredients (leaving the garnishes out of course!). allow this to marinate for at least an hour, all day is ideal for maximum flavor.
  2. pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. 
  3. line a medium-sized roasting pan with tin foil. add the chicken legs + top them with the rest of the marinade. do not reserve this marinade for dipping (it's been mingling with raw chicken!) but cooking it alongside the chicken will keep the legs moist.
  4. bake the chicken legs in the oven for around one hour, until they're golden.
  5. remove the legs from the oven and serve with rice. garnish with sesame seeds, chopped peanuts + more sliced green onions.
