Balsamic Glaze BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

My love affair with homemade Balsamic Glaze continues with these BBQ chicken drumsticks. Balsamic glaze is sticky so makes any excellent marinade that permeates the chicken skins. You only need 15 minutes to marinade the chicken legs (although they benefit from 3 hours) then grind over some salt and pop them on the BBQ. Alternatively you can cook them in the oven.

  • Generously spoon some balsamic glaze onto the chicken legs then rub all over the meat and allow to marinade for as long as possible.
  • Grind over generously with salt then cook on a 200°C BBQ (closing the lid between turning) for 35 minutes. Put the meat onto grills not over direct heat, this will stop the sugar in the glaze from burning. Turn often and baste with the leftover glaze. Once the juices run clear the legs are ready to serve.
