Made this with inexpensive chicken drumsticks I found on sale, but should work with thigh meat or wings - breasts may not provide enough flavor (i.e., umami from fat).


Wanted a strong flavor that goes well with rice so made a marinade of of soy sauce, sake, mirin, Sriracha hot sauce, grated ginger, crushed garlic, sugar, minced scallions, and salt and black pepper - basically, what I had on hand. Didn't measure anything when making this marinade except for being careful about the amount of soy sauce, salt, and Sriracha to avoid making it too salty or too hot. Put the marinade and drumsticks (pierced some holes with a skewer to allow penetration of flavor) in a plastic bag, massaged some, sealed, and marinated in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.


When cooking, first seared all sides of the marinated drumsticks (taken out of the fridge about half an hour before cooking) in a oiled and well-heated cast iron pan to get a good color, then placed the pan into a 350F oven to cook for 20 minutes or so. Served with some sautéd kale and tomatoes, and a bowl of rice.
