Orange-Infused Teryaki Chicken Drumsticks
What are your favorite weeknight meals?
Taste: The sauce has a wonderful mixture of complex, fresh, sweet & savory flavor. Would be great on all cuts of chicken and beef.
Texture: The chicken is moist and the sesame seeds add a nice bite.
Ease: Very easy. Sauce can easily create a few quick weeknight meals of chicken and beef if made a ahead of time and marinated the night before or in the morning.
Appearance: The sesame seeds add a nice pop of color.
Pros: Awesome simple and easy weeknight meal.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Would I make this again? Yes.
