Easy One-Pot Braised Chicken Drumsticks Recipe

Serves: 4 people
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes

For the chicken:
8 (2 pounds) drumsticks, bone-in, skin-on
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 pieces ginger
1 ½ tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine
3 cups of water
1 cinnamon
1 black cardamom pod (tsaoko)
3 star anises
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon whole black pepper

Season the drumsticks with salt and white pepper.

In a large pot, over high heat, add the vegetable oil, ginger, and chicken drumsticks. Then brown every side of the chicken until golden, about 4 minutes.

Add in the sugar and stir-fry until it’s melted. (This will give the chicken a beautiful red color.) Then add in the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, rice wine. Stir and let it cook for 1 minute. Also add in 3 cups of water, cinnamon, black cardamom pod, star anises, bay leaves, and whole black pepper. (I have all of these spices in my pantry, but if you can’t access anything. You can simply replace it with others, or just take it out. That’s totally fine.) Cover the lid. Over high heat, bring to boil. Turn to low heat, and cook for 40 minutes.
