Tomato Honey Glazed Chicken

You all would know by now that chicken drumsticks are my good friends especially when I need something quick, easy and doesn’t wreck my poor brain. That goes for the mornings when I prepare lunch and in the evenings after work. I never like to wreck my brain for anything. ehem.

I had a bit of tomato puree leftover from another recipe and had to finish it up before it turns moldy in the dark forgotten corner of my little fridge. So I decided to mix a bunch of stuff up together and slather them on chicken drumsticks.

I used some lavender mustard, tomato puree, honey, soy sauce & olive oil.  All rather strong ingredients that work well superbly. I didn’t include any salt and pepper here because I always season my chicken with salt and pepper before freezing them.

That shine comes from the honey. It gets all glazed and sticky and just lovely.

Hey, wouldn’t have these been better if I wrapped them with bacon? Now, that’s an idea.

I like to think of this as my quick BBQ sauce. Did I pass?
