Red Wine Honey And Sesame Roasted Drumstick

















Sesame seeds are good for health and I love to add them to my salad , buns and roasts. They contain sesamin and sesamolin, substances that is believed to prevent high blood pressure and protect the liver against damage. They are rich in Vitamin E that helps to strengthen the heart and nervous system.  Good news for us women....sesame oil can help removes wrinkles !  I just discovered that half cup of sesame seeds contains 3 times more calcium than half cup of whole milk. Whoa...... calcium helps prevent osteoporisis ...I can use them generously for my cooking from now on....:)
Back to this roasts before my thoughts go astray again.....I know Jo and Daddy loves roast chicken ,so  I make them '  Red Wine , Honey & Sesame Roasted Drumstick ' ....tender and juicy on the inside with a slight crispness on the outside. The sesame seeds gave it a nutty fragrant and the honey and red wine marinade enhanced the flavor further....mmmmm  yummy !




Simply marinate these drumsticks in thick soy sauce, pepper, honey, red wine and sea salts for an hour. Brush olive oil on the marinated drumstick and place them on a wire rack over a baking sheet lined with aluminium foil  to collect the drippings . Roasts at 200°C for 40 minutes with  basting the drumsticks with the left over marinade sauce for the first twenty minutes of roasting, after which , sprinkle black and sesame seeds evenly over the drumsticks. Continue baking another 20 minutes till the drumsticks are properly cooked and golden brown. Serve this as a dish with hot steaming rice or just as finger food with a glass of beer or Chivas :p

















finger licking good ...imagine this with
 a glass of beer or chivas :)
heavenly!

















this taste very much like BBQ drumsticks :)

















Josh would love this....I am wicked again.. making him drool
on this for the time being :p

Daddy loves these as finger food
for his Chivas or beer :)
