Try Mustard-glazed Chicken for a flavorful, inexpensive dish

Sep 8, 2015 by Capt. John Wampler

Yacht owners often ask me where I come up with my recipes. Some are picked up on my travels around the world, and some are more domestic in nature. I often choose my menu plan by looking for deals in the supermarket circulars stuffed in my mailbox.

This week, I found a grocer who had chicken drumsticks on sale for 49 cents a pound. You can spend upwards to a $1.29 a pound for skinless drumsticks or you can pull the skin off and save half the price. (Grasping skin with a paper towel will make this slippery chore simple.)

In this simple, six-ingredient recipe — made with items already in the pantry — you have a flavorful and inexpensive dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 scallions
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole-grain mustard
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 8 skinless chicken drumsticks

Mince the scallion whites and slice the green tops; keep the whites and greens in separate ramekins.

In a 12-inch skillet, combine the scallion whites, sugar, mustard, soy sauce, vinegar and half a cup water over a medium-high heat. Simmer mixture until bubbles start to break the surface.

Add chicken, reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer slowly for 20 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through, until chicken registers 180 degrees F.

Remove chicken and raise the heat to medium-high. Reduce the mixture to form a glaze, about 5 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat and stir in the scallion greens. Add the chicken to toss and cover with glaze. Plate and serve with your favorite side dish. Enjoy. — JW
