  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger minced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Onion Marmalade

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 3 shallots chopped
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  • Put drumsticks in a resealable plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over drumsticks. Close bag and turn it so the marinade coats each drumstick. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat barbecue on medium. Grill drumsticks, with the lid closed, until a thermometer inserted into the drumstick reads 165°F (74°C) (about 20 minutes). Serve with Onion Marmalade.

Onion Marmalade

  • In a skillet, heat oil and sauté onions and shallots until deep brown. Pour in sugar and red wine; continue to stir cook until no liquid remains. May be served hot or cold.
