There are things in life couples won’t ever agree on.

Music. Wall color. Music. Whether Inception is a good movie or not.

Did I mention music?

It’s a fact. You just can’t agree on everything.


For example. I loved these Peach, Apricot and Balsamic Glazed Drumsticks they are sweet, tangy and juicy. My husband said… “The sauce needs a habanero in it.” No, I’m just kidding, he didn’t say that! He actually said that they were just “all right”. Wha-WHAT?? I promptly punched him in the arm and told him that he was crazy, rolled my eyes and then reached for a second drumstick.

He can be such a child sometimes.

This is all that you’ll need. Easy peasy!

FACT: Fresh ginger always tastes better than ground. I keep my leftover pieces in the freezer and grate it when needed. But, if you need to use ground ginger… then only use a half a teaspoon of the stuff.

Add in the apricot and peach preserves.

Then add in the salt, pepper, cayenne and then the balsamic vinegar. Give it a stir and then reserve about a 1/4 cup for some final glazing.

Give it a whisk then add in the drumsticks.

Toss until well coated.

Then place the glazed chicken drumsticks on your pre-heated medium low grill. Notice how I start off all organized… yeeeeeah… it doesn’t last for long.

Grill covered for about 25-30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Then 10 minutes before they are done pull out the reserved glaze…. ohhhh yeah baby!!

Then with your pastry brush…

Slather. It. On.

Really, I could drink this stuff.

Oh me oh my.

Like I said, sweet and tangy… The key to these chicken drumsticks is a crispy skin and a good char! Perfect next to my Apple & Cabbage Slaw just sayin.

These are delicious {so stuff it Pat}!
