Balsamic Chicken Drumsticks Recipe.

The dramatic dark color of this sauce promises a lot of flavor – and it doesn’t disappoint. With the coconut aminos, ginger, and red pepper flakes, it has a hint of Asian flavor inspiration, and the honey balances out all the tart and spicy ingredients with just a little bit of sweetness. Top it all off with some green onions and devour.


Balsamic Chicken Drumsticks Recipe


  • 8 chicken drumsticks, skinless;
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar;
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos;
  • 1 cup water;
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced;
  • 2 tbsp. raw honey;
  • 2 tsp. fresh grated ginger;
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes;
  • Green onion, finely sliced;


  1. Combine the balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos, water, ginger, garlic, honey, and red pepper flakes.
  2. Place the drumstick in a saucepan or dutch oven.
  3. Pour the balsamic sauce on top of the drumsticks. Place the pan on the stovetop, and bring to a boil.
  4. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
