  • ¼ cup soy sauce low sodium

Korean BBQ Chicken

  • 4 lb chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp cilantro or parsley, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F °.
  • Make the sauce: Mix the soy sauce, sriracha, garlic, ginger, honey, sesame oil, olive oil, and rice wine vinegar in a bowl and set aside.
  • Bake the chicken: Place the chicken in a large baking dish and pour the sauce over each piece. Flip the pieces to ensure they're fully covered in sauce. Bake for 20 minutes, brush or baste the chicken with the sauce from the pan, then bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the thickest piece registers 165F degrees in the middle.
  • Garnish: Sprinkle the chicken generously with sesame seeds and chopped cilantro. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.



Stored leftover chicken in an air tight container properly cooled, this chicken dish will keep for 3 – 4 days in the fridge. Just reheat in the microwave or the oven if you’d prefer when ready to eat.
Place the drumsticks on a baking sheet and allow to freeze till frozen through, place the drumsticks in a freezer bag or an air tight container after wards and this method will allow them to keep for 4 – 6 months. Remove from the freezer and allow to thaw in the fridge over night when ready to eat. Just reheat in the oven at 350 F degrees till warmed through and enjoy!
